CULTURAL MARKET

he Cultural Market is a model for refugees  to restart their life and give back to the community in the form of service, culture and goods. 

There is a gap in the resettlement process of refugees and creating a space with opportunities for them to share their skills.  the opportunity to work can provide successful integration and acceptance of refugees by the community. Once they arrive, they come with previous knowledge or some cultural aspects that can  enrich communities.  

The market is an existing metallic structure covering a village of 8 houses, informal spaces and green areas. The houses are integrated, functional and provide suitable spaces for diverse activities such as  community centers, retail stores, a gym, kids care, restaurants and co-workings spaces.
