A mobile market into an old train
The project was designed by Amilcar Ferreira and Marcelo Fernandes as an entry for the 2013 M.ART Opengap Competition, wich focuses on refindind the concept of the market as a common and public space. Le Petit Ceinture aims to eliminate all the negative aspects of organizing urban markets and provide people with a more sustainable and fuss-free experience.
With this project the Chemin de fer de Petite Ceinture, Parisian railway, is rehabilitated. The trains, carrying workshop and stores, picks up visitors and travels across the city without generate waste.
