Popis projektu

In a bid to appraise this market culture and capture it’s depression over time due to the corona-virus pandemic, we have adapted this form that has allowed us a functional space allocation and cater for our yearning for an aesthetic outlook.

The modality of this market model will enable the replication and adaptation in different neighbourhoods to reduce the need of walking long distances to get food and essentials. Further adaptation techniques is the actual movement of each repoed danfo to each doorstep to deliver food and essentials to people living there I.e they do not need to leave their homes during the pandemic.
