SANCHINARRO´S MARKET CONTEST, MADRID
The place for the market, understood to be a public square sheltered by an ethereal and floating element, which hosts the other uses, sits on a plane naturally linking the dimension of the green area adjacent to the street Fernando de Rojas. Thus, this NEW MARKET SQUARE, relative to the plane on which the food stores sit, ensures continuity in the shearwater, instead of being understood as an obstacle.
BUILD A SPACE IN SHADE UNDER A SURROUNDING PERMEABLE TO LIGHT
The rest of the program, both the non-food business as the gym and the areas of public administration, is developed in a few volumes that rise above the ground plane.
These floated elements are wrapped in a permeable skin that on one hand qualifies and controls its relationship with the outside, and on the other hand makes the set acquire an unmistakable presence in the environment, responding to the urban scale that generates Sanchinarro.
The urban scale increases considerably in the consolidation of the city limit.
This site performance leads us to consider the cover as thickness between the architecture and its surroundings, a space between the building and the landscape.
