LUO studio prefabricates modular components to build a temporary indoor market in china

LUO studio has designed a large temporary structure in puyang city, china, to provide a new space for locals to buy fresh produce during the demolition and reconstruction of the existing shengli urban market. due to the client’s requirements, the architects focused on creating a low cost building with a short construction period. with this in mind, a modular, prefabricated structure was specified, resulting in reduced time on site and also allowing the building to be dismantled and recycled for future constructions.

the site of the temporary shengli market is located close to the former building. set back from the main road, the large plot also provides a generous car parking space, making it convenient for both vendors and customers alike. the design by LUO studio forms an industrialized shed-like architectural structure, built using standardized modules to ensure rapid construction and reduced costs.

inside the building, the space is designed to create an orderly and functional marketplace. clear lanes and wide passageways provide comfortable circulation through the hall, while colored signs overhead allow customers to easily find the food they’re looking for. the shelves used to sell the fresh produce are built using timber and steel. employing uniform measurements, these form a clean and simple atmosphere, much like the modular structure itself.

the structure of the market utilizes cement slabs, lightweight steel panels, timber and polycarbonate sheets, which can be seen exposed throughout the interior. inverted pyramid frames have been employed to build the entrance canopy, reducing material usage while providing structural stability. inside, this pyramid shape is repeated at the columns of the building using wood and steel. resembling umbrellas, they serve not only for putting signs to indicate the market’s different areas but also to house light fixtures. by introducing these elements of warm-colored timber, LUO studio creates a welcoming environment, in keeping with the sustainable credentials of a temporary building that can be recycled and reused in the future.
