You are invited to submit only 2 drawings, absolute freedom of scale, site or program.
Designers are asked to design a market (indoor or outdoor) that promotes an economic system that aims to eliminate waste and promote the continuous use of resources through strategies such as recycling, reusing, and repairing products.
The proposals should create an exceptional architectural model that can preserve the favorable aspects of markets, create a genuine public area, and have a positive influence on the particular community in which the project is situated.
