GRAPHISOFT, based in Budapest, Hungary—the leading BIM software developer for architects and designers—is pleased to announce that Hungary’s A4 Studio has won the World Architecture Community Award in the Public Buildings/Community Centers category for its design of the Casablanca market in Morocco.

Casablanca market design

The market design is the scene of lively commerce on the ground floor and peaceful conversations on the terraces. Designed using ArchiCAD, the triangle of the site is in contact with its broader environment as the rope structure integrates the neighboring houses. The grey-water of the market irrigates the park in front of the school, while the stalls transform into dining tables and a stage in the evening, facilitating the start-up of new restaurants and shops on the premises of the surrounding buildings.
