A market is a still nature.
A place to exchange still natures.

Many images come to mind when we saythe word ‘market’.
Images with and without life.

A shoal of fish swimming above yourhead when you are diving. Wonderful.
Tuna loins on the ice in thefishmonger.

A orchard of orange trees, withtheir bright points of color against the green leaves.
The impressive arrangement oforanges in the fruit shops.

The wild poppies on the sides ofroads.
The scent of jasmine, daisies,oleanders…

They are references from privateworlds, from lived experiences, memories…
They are not tectonic.

We propose a building as the sum ofexperiences and feelings.
Not a building with the shape of amarket, but a building which is formed through its reference to naturalsystems:
- Scales.
- Flowers.
- Tunaloin and belly steaks. From dark grey to white.
- Infinitecolors.
- Theseasons.
A vaporous building.
A building that can change color.That adapts to the natural cycles, to the seasons: blue, green, yellow, brown;winter, spring, summer and fall.
A building with a recognizableimage.
