studio matter designs open-air market in india

 

goa-based architecture studio matter has completed the design for a local produce market within the narindrapur village in bihar, india. developed around a large tree, the design retains all existing vendors as per the existing clusters with a few additional facilities and space for more vendors to join. the project also accounts for ideas of interaction, circulation, and accessibility in an attempt to invigorate the place as a small urban node with the possibility of activities even on days when the market is not open.

a lively gathering place 

 

since decades, a bi-weekly market has popped up on the site — an odd-shaped strip of land on opposite sides of the narindrapur road in siwan, bihar. with the goal to breathe new life into the area, studio matter has developed a new design that preserves the original market layout while adding new facilities and uses. 

 

the market is organized around a central tree, while the vendor stands stand on a series of plinths that form an enclosed layout. meanwhile, all structures are protected from the harsh sunlight thanks to the sade of the tree and wire-cut brick jaali screen. with its flexible design, the new market intends to promote interaction, circulation, and accessibility in order to establish the area as a lively gathering place for the locals.
