Passionate young "Studio M + A_Arquitectura" formed by María González Álvarez and Jose Ramón Santo Marhuenda, presented this project to a competition for the Rehabilitation of the Market of Roquetas de Mar under the name 2x1gastroÁGORA.
- Build a city that has access to the market from any perimetral street. In the same way that one can access the interior of “los Bajos” from differents cities that diverge and reunite in the interior of the market´s plaza.
- Build a landscape with the forest which will help us organize the spaces near the market. The two codes: visual and of colors, are applied in the same way than in ¨los bajos¨, by using the same type of trees.
Taking into account all the possible variations/changes that the market can suffer, there are some constructive systems that are being looked into in order to allow more freedom, flexibility and reconfiguration of the spaces, according to the specific spacial needs of every situation and of every merchant. The market is resolved with solutions of easy construction, looking for a balance between standardization and adaptability.
