This vegetable market building was inspired by Parisian markets and works of artist Lucio Fontana. The first inspiration for the outer shell of this structure are the Parisian markets and train stations with soaring ceilings and stained glass windows. The building’s geometry is linear and close to the ground. It resembles a rolling landscape, loaf of bread or canvas stretched over unseen limbs. Whatever the connotations, the important idea is that it has the power to stimulate our imagination, much like food that can rouse the senses. The second inspiration, and the building’s namesake, are the leaf-shaped windows, resembling the cuts and fissures perpetrated into the painting canvas by Lucio Fontana. The last inspirations are everyday clouds, depicted in the freeform geometry of the cloud windows, cleverly positioned over the roofs.
