Starting in 2003, Makan was conceived as an alternative arts space in Amman, with an open and exploratory cultural program. SYNTAX was asked to re-design its website. Makan’s essence, aside to its core mission for working with artists, and cultural practitioners locally and internationally in a wide range of multi-media practices; is reflecting its identity as a welcoming space where people not only come to for contemporary arts and cultural presentations and exhibitions, but as a place where people meet and talk with like-minded people. SYNTAX’s designers went to test the atmosphere, and spent a few days working in the space, talking to artists and working from its famous balcony. Focusing on the idea of meeting people in a relaxed welcoming place, they picked up on Makan’s character from its own collection of chairs, which relayed exactly that spirit of creativity, and a relaxed place to meet people in the field.
