ULPIANA MARKET

Design Competition, 2019, Prishtinë – 2nd Place Winner

A sustainable intervention that would contribute to urban rehabilitation and local values enhancement. Ulpiana Market, a contemporary market that through vibrant spaces will contribute to the green urban economy, promote local products and values. This market will be a “contemporary” landmark for Prishtina. The combination of commercial, gastronomic, public and administrative spaces evolves around a terraced and colorful platform. This platform, also planned as the “heart” of the market, will serve for events such as promotion of seasonal products, new products, community gatherings for certain occasions, or simply a meeting point for residents. The market, which itself combines a range of spaces and activities, is covered in a hexagonal patterned envelope, inspired from bee hives regarding the geometries, and inspired from variety of local goods regarding color.
