b720 Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos unveils design for new market in Barcelona

b720 just informed us that they won the ideas competition for the new Market dels Encants in Barcelona, Spain, commissioned by the city.

Near the iconic Agbar Tower, the project develops as a continuous platform that deals with the topography of the site, covered with a big roof that unifies all the activities on this platform. The roof varies its inclination in order to reflect different views and daylight changes.

Sadly, this is the only picture available. More information soon, as b720 is developing the executive project.

b720 is a spanish studio lead by Fermín Vázquez. They have worked with Jean Nouvel (Agbar Tower, MNCARS) and David Chipperfield (America´s Cup Building, Justice City Complex, AV Campus, among others) as local architects.
