“Courtyard in the market” recovers the essence of the courtyard as an area typical of traditional culture, full of life. The simple movement of removal of 4 precast pieces of the roof generates the courtyard. The courtyard becomes an oasis within the bustling market. Leisure areas are created along the corridors in order to rest or enjoy the purchased products.
