2018 The Floral Market
Inspired by the physical structures and bustling stalls of traditional flower and produce markets, similar to Old Covent Garden or Borough Market. A beautiful, airy, structure creates a covered market building, filled with an abundant and bountiful display of mostly UK grown flowers and plants.
Metal arches lead to a large, arched flower window, representing the ‘sky and sun’ as if reflected in the ‘glass’. Staggered, green walls to either side of the flower window represent the stone fabric of the building.
The covered market: stalls under parasols create spaces for displays of moth orchids and hydrangeas. A central stall under the arch has tiered displays of stocks and tulips.
Beyond the walls: tiers of boxes of potted and cut flowers, in informal groupings, represent fruit and veg market stalls stacked up against walls.
The floral pavement: flat flower and foliage squares form stylized paving ‘slabs’ set amongst an aged ‘Yorkstone’ pavement.
