Paravur Market

2015

Sprawling near the Paravur canal, the Paravur Market was the main trading centre for pottery, tapioca, eggs, etc by the Jews before it was taken up by the locals. Pedestrianisation of the big vegetable market and the small meat market, built along either sides of the main road carrying heavy traffic including buses, was not practical. Instead the waterfront area is developed as a public congregation space with plenty of seating space, crowned by the foliage of trees, to view the boat races. With adaptive reuse of vacant buildings for various amenities and introduction of uniformity in the facade treatment, the project aims at a holistic approach of economic regeneration of the market involving the local people and development of tourism.
