GARAK WHOLESALE MARKET

seoul south korea

2017

A submission for an international design competition we proposed a superstructure. We imagined a 'soft grid' structure as an armature for growth and adaptability for decades to come. The continued success of the Garak Wholesale Market will require the fluidity of space be defined within this literal and metaphorical framework of possibility. The market can continue to adapt and change both horizontally and vertically

The functional aspirations of the project uphold
the programmatic requirements with particular attention to large-scale public gatherings and events. The opportunity to incorporate new programs for community engagement at times when the food market is dormant can service residents near and far, casting Garak
Wholesale Market as a public destination
