A Hybrid Market for Mexico City

Marlon Blackwell, Author

By identifying the salient characteristics of one of Mexico's essential cultural institutions, the market, one can posit strategies for how urban space, commercial space and public space may be synthesized into a fourth space, a hybrid space, where the transformational nature of the economic, social, and spatial systems of the city can be incorporated and facilitated.

The goal is to develop a new urban building type, with tectonic richness that can comment on the present and simultaneously recall its lineage.
