Bursa Wholesale Grocer and Fish Market
Bursa, Turkey
This market aims to follow in the tradition of the high, vaulted bazaars of Central Asia, bringing producers, brokers and retailers together in a high, vaulted space. Like a stadium, the market’s fluid elliptical form allows maximum visibility, so that supply, demand and quality can be clearly surveyed by all parties. With brokers’ offices around the perimeter, the 350-metre-long building is naturally ventilated and has been designed to allow pedestrians, vehicles and goods to move easily through the space. It is part of a larger complex, which includes a fish market similar in form, as well as an office tower with restaurant and hotel.
