Market and Workshops

Location: Casablanca, Marroco   Type: Master Thesis Project    Date: June 2013 

The market at ground floor is a reinterpretation of the traditional morocco zoco. The main direction of the streets follows the north-south axis, connecting both the main square at the front and the back of the market, where the delivery area is located. The workshops, at first floor, creates a system of courtyards that allows ventilation and natural light into the market.

 

The textiled membrane that covers the building protects from direct sun light while emphises the lightweight of the volume.​
