project Marketplace, Komiža, Croatia

The market is situated in the interior yard, across the post office. It is accessed from the Hrvatskih mučenika Street, which connects the market with the waterfront. It consists of the canopy and market stalls. The yard includes a mulberry tree and an added water basin. 

The canopy disc floats over the yard. The impression of weightlessness is created by the slenderness of the canopy, its Arp-like curves and thin steel columns with capitals.
