The concept of the Livestock Marketplace project by MetroPolis starts as a space that turns into a landscape sign. The market is a cycle (daily, monthly), the life of the animals traded is also a cycle. Both are rigid and defined.
Visiting the market space is an overlap of the shopping life cycle with that of visitor life. The most complex cycle but also a defined one.
We want to turn the overlap of these processes, which coincides with the Time of Market Revival, into a spatial experience that is remembered. Overlapping of these two different cycles turned to be a space where everyone can see all the processes that will happen there.
The livestock project is located outside of inhabited areas. In the suburban area of Fier city.
