tunnus thynnus
A market is a still nature.
A place to exchange still natures.

Many images come to mind when we say the word ‘market’.
Images with and without life.

A shoal of fish swimming above your head when you are diving. Wonderful.
Tuna loins on the ice in the fishmonger.

A orchard of orange trees, with their bright points of color against the green leaves.
The impressive arrangement of oranges in the fruit shops.

The wild poppies on the sides of roads.
The scent of jasmine, daisies, oleanders…

They are references from private worlds, from lived experiences, memories…
They are not tectonic.

We propose a building as the sum of experiences and feelings.
Not a building with the shape of a market, but a building which is formed through its reference to natural systems:
- Scales.
- Flowers.
- Tuna loin and belly steaks. From dark grey to white.
- Infinite colors.
- The seasons.
A vaporous building.
A building that can change color. That adapts to the natural cycles, to the seasons: blue, green, yellow, brown; winter, spring, summer and fall.
A building with a recognizable image.
