project, Poreč, 2018.
Viale Market is a part of the Poreč waterfront and as such, a part of the Poreč waterfront spatial study made for the city in 2016. It is located in the vicinity of the city center and represents a transitional part of the waterfront. The study foresees open vistas, clear and continuous pedestrian routes and various public amenities and contents in order to enhance the quality and duration of users stay in the area. The project is planned to be completed in phases. The design of the Viale Market, the so-called "city canopy", is the first phase of the construction and design of Poreč waterfront.
In order for the Market to become a place of active life for the local community and guests of the city, a new large public area is formed by overlapping squares, terraces and parks, removing parking, preserving existing trees and introducing new traffic regulation in the area of today's "bazaar" with a multitude of inadequate temporary kiosks and buildings.
The planned Market is multifunctional, with commercial, catering, exhibition
The northern and southern end of the Market building can be closed off and turned into separate rooms with direct access to the bar and other necessary contents. This enables the organization of various smaller private, public and semi-public events (exhibition,
Greenery and paving zones cascade around the canopy all the way down to the promenade. Seating and relaxation areas with benches, urban equipment, and bicycle stands are formed under the trees on these cascades. The benches are designed as wooden decks for seating and lounging. Existing trees are preserved and the tiled paving uninterruptedly passes into the Viale interior. In the summer, when the movable panels of the market open, the interior and the exterior act as one. A park with significantly larger trees and green areas, children's playgrounds and urban equipment integrated with the green islands
