A new fruit and vegetable wholesale market in Tainan has been finished by MVRDV. The open-air market, which Taiwan's United Daily News has already dubbed "the most beautiful fruit and vegetable market in Taiwan," acts as a key node in the city of Tainan's food supply chain. The roof could be improved in the future, opening up the potential of growing produce atop the building, reports www.archilovers.com.
An ambitious architectural attempt is Tainan Market. Here, MVRDV reimagines the wholesale market's typology, a building type that is typically housed in basic metal sheds and transforms it.
