Part 2 Project 2017

The public market forms the heart of this hybrid market-transport station. The market as an ancient typology embedded in Mexican society is urged to evolve in conjunction with the city, opening up to incorporate a range of informal and formal activity. The project reacts to current redevelopment in Mexico City, challenging the prevalent tendency towards corporate-oriented commercial development to the detriment of civic institutions and the quality of urban life.
