. — THE PROJECT SEEKS TO HIGHLIGHT THE INNOVATIVE YET HIDDEN SPATIAL FEATURES OF THE OLD MARKET AND BRING IT TO LIFE. IT IS A LENS, FOCUSING THE EYE OF THE OBSERVER ON THE KEY MOMENTS OF THE HISTORIC STRUCTURE. A SERIES OF SUBTLE ARCHITECTURAL INTERVENTIONS WERE UTILISED TO EXTEND THE BLOCK AND CREATE NEW ADAPTIVE SPACES. THE COLOURISATION AND SIMPLE FORMS SLIP THROUGH THE MARKET CREATING A PLAYFUL DIALOGUE OF THE OLD AND NEW.
