The main objective of the competition was to redefine the purpose of the existent market building, as well as its relation to the contiguous urban park.
The intervention proposal is based on the assumption that the actual market and its purpose are vitally important for the city center’s commercial dynamics and should be enhanced.
The proposal added a new building to the existing market with the following functions: fish market, multipurpose room (SMUB), restaurants and esplanades. This two building unit will be the new Mercado 1º de Maio.
There will be two different public spaces between the two buildings: the Praça and the Parque. Activities such as fairs and street markets at weekends were proposed.
