The project layout limits transit vehicular movement and enhances pedestrian circulation within the commercial complex. Covered walkways and pedestrian streets are provided. The different facilities are arranged around three courts, with the wholesale market at thecenter and the trading cells, banks and post office buildings on the periphery. The buildings are based on the repetition of 4.5 metre wide structural bays roofed with a barrel vault concrete shell. Thisstandardization allowed for a rapid and economical construction process. The project also features an auction hall with raised platform for loading and unloading produce.1
