Market in Boston

Boston, MA, USA

An analysis of Eladio Dieste’s Church of Christ the Worker serves as the starting point for this hub of transaction in East Boston. Formed based on the church’s geometric logic, the market introduces another design challenge – the enclosure of the building without a roof. The geometry of the undulating walls is manipulated by modifying the amplitude and period at different heights that allows for an enclosed space. The aggregation of these tortured geometries produce a multitude of spatial conditions as well as light wells.
