About Competition

Brief for the “Artisan Fair | A hotspot for cultural traders and enthusiasts” challenge is to design a setting for an artisanal marketplace that functions only for a limited amount of time at regular intervals.

Due to commercialization and the emergence of big brand stores, artisans are unable to compete with them with their small-scale (individual) setup. Markets can help the artisans come together to network and promote their business.

The market must be built to accommodate local artisans. The market setup will be temporary so the impact on site must be minimal. Artisan’s market breathes new life into the public realm and so its design must have a connection with surroundings while having unique features. The culture of the city can be used for inspiration.

A model market design has to be well-organized, easy to navigate, and self-sustaining. Comfort must be achieved in the open or semi-open setup. The site can be used for public gatherings by providing space for events and artists viewing.
