Miranda do Corvo Municipal Market

Print
The market is one of the essential items when building a city; over the last decades, especially in the large cities, markets have lost their importance and are undergoing a crisis; the main reason is that they did not remain up-to-date nor renewed their structures. In Miranda do Corvo, the Municipal Market has been renovated by building a floor above the shopping area on the ground floor, where a new programme for offices is proposed, acting as a company incubator. The metal-covered façade, together with the redesigned base of the building, redefine both the building and its immediate surroundings and allow the revitalization of the specifically different times and uses of this building.
