Narindrapur Market at Siwan, Bihar, by Studio Matter

Since decades, a bi-weekly market has popped up on this site – an odd-shaped strip of land on opposite sides of the Narindrapur road in Siwan, Bihar. The design retains all existing vendors as per the existing clusters with a few additional facilities and space for more vendors to join. By organising the market on plinths and under the shade of MS space-framed structures, the design also accounts for ideas of interaction, circulation and accessibility in an attempt to invigorate the place as a small urban node with the possibility of activities even on days when the market does not sit.
