The Center for the Study of the Built Environment (CSBE), which was founded in 1999 by Mohammad al-Asad, is a non-profit, private study and research institution that aims at addressing these challenges affecting the built environment in Jordan and beyond. The built environment is defined in a comprehensive manner to include all physical components of human settlements such as buildings, streets, open spaces, and infrastructure. CSBE is therefore an interdisciplinary center that addresses areas including environmental studies, urban design and planning, conservation, architecture, landscape architecture, and construction technologies. CSBE engages in a variety of activities including research projects, print and digital publishing, workshops, and the design and implementation of pilot projects.
