The New Mercato del Pesce
Built on the site of the existing fish market, it uses an intricate woven system of brass sunpipes to bring light from the sun-soaked rooftops to the darker shadowed alleyways below. Steam from the restaurant kitchen and mist from the freezer room collide to create a suspended body of vapour within specific spaces, giving volume to the light intersecting it. The circulation of guests is choreographed to inhabit and interact with this volumetric light, transforming the functional into the spectacular.
