Located in the heart of fashion and branded boutiques of Paris, the approach of the Paris Market Lab project by Ayrat Khusnutdinov and Gemawang Swaribathoro provides a unique experience. With the theme of ‘You Buy, We Cook’, they create not just another restaurant, but a vibrant social hub fused with a possibility to transform a regular visit to an adventure. More images and architects’ description after the break.
In the daytime, the wet market on the ground piazza gives a sense of freedom for the customers to purchase raw food ingredients. Then, they can offer them to the students of the school as an assignment in order to try their knowledge and improvise their skills by cooking with a random menu.
The ground piazza also allows the neighborhood to interact and gather. This idea can be of a mutual system not only for the users/customers of the building itself, but for all the elements around the surrounding area in particular and Paris in general
