Ouahigouya Grand Market
Ouahigouya, Burkina Faso
The redevelopment of an old pre-existing marketplace into a new commercial area with single-storey buildings on a 34 hectar site, based on a grid, and the shop fronts, once opened, provide shade for the walkways. The construction was designed to be labour-intensive in order to create jobs as well as training for local workers.
