Project DescriptionFROM THE ARCHITECTS:
The project consisted of the design, prefabrication and construction of the Covington Farmers Market. At the scale of the town, the building reads as a seamless gesture. At the scale of the occupant, the details express the modular construction. A locust deck serves as the market floor. It folds up to allow the nesting of an office, storage room and restroom, and extends beyond the market into a sloped earth park to provide a stage and seating. A sculptural roof and ceiling of reclaimed heart-pine and galvanized sheet steel floats over-head. This market pavilion is the modern expression of timeless agrarian sensibilities.
