results for the [AC-CA] competition are out, and the winning proposals for a sustainable market square in casablanca, morocco have been released.taking first place with a scheme of leaf-shaped canopies, rotterdam-based tomdavid architects. cavernous passageways permeating a volume of wooden struts by PMG architects took second and a whimsical canopy suspended by helium balloons by chagny, louzir, sponti and chazeau seize third.

 

taking the silver, PMG architects‘ proposal plays heavily on the use of negative space taking form from the canopy of hundreds of slender squaretimber dowels that outline the vernacular archways  that lead the visitor into a semi-enclosed space of filtered light until reaching the heart of the marketwhere an opening in the grid-like roof illuminates the space. the massive structure only touches the ground at a few specific points where columnar clusters transfer loads into the concrete base.
