Inspired by the suspended-hanging community-designed shading structures seen on traditional moroccan marketplaces
The scaffolding-like building lets the traffic flow through the arcade-like marketplace. Lively commerce on the ground floor, peaceful conversations on the terraces.
The triangle of the site is in contact with its broader environment as the rope structure integrates the neighbouring houses, the grey-water of the market irrigates the park in front of the school and the stalls transform into dining tables and a stage in the evening and facilitates the start-up of new restaurants and shops in the premises of the surrounding buildings.
Casablanca Market by Géza Kendik in Morocco won the WA Award Cycle 20. Please find below the WA Award poster for this project.
