Public Market in Matamoros

Colectivo C733  

In the framework of a national effort to revitalize vulnerable urban areas, a market raised by means of a low-cost building system aspires to become a neighborhood’s nerve center.

The edifice takes on the solid but permeable character of traditional marketplaces: a series of trapezoidal modules forms a porticoed structure around a courtyard that protects the premises from the dry environment.

The lightweight metal structure of ‘umbrellas,’ an exportable model which is highly flexible and easy to set up, makes it possible to channel rainwater and induce natural ventilation and illumination for the stalls.
