Mercado 2 de Maio
Rehabilitation of the ’Mercado 2 de Maio’
The aim of this project was the rehabilitation of the ’Mercado 2 de Maio’, located in the city of Viseu, Portugal.
Beyond the new design of the exterior spaces and the renovation of infrastructures, the project includes the full coverage of its open space, with a canopy made from a metallic structure and photovoltaic glass panels. These allow not only more comfort for public use but also the production of clean and free energy.
The architectural project was done by Braga Macedo Arquitectos, the engineering coordination overseen by Blokk and steel structures engineered by Steelplan.
