The new food market creates an intersection for the exchange of healthy produce, ideas and community interaction.

The Bristol Food Market is a reaction to the monotony of the modern supermarket. The fracturing line of the railway is addressed with a terraced market hall that links the station to the floating harbour beyond, thus reconnecting the two halves of Bristol. Goods and people share a market rail that loops under the terraces and through Bristol Temple Meads station. This all takes place under a pneumatic, performative cloud roof that floats weightlessly over the open air market.
