Turkey’s vibrant open-air neighborhood markets, the pazar, penetrate every neighborhood one day a week for centuries and are an important part of public life. The pazar fundamental practice of place-making, in its absolute agility, simplicity and responses to terrain and climate, has been nearly perfected along with the choreography of set-up and take-down – their structures totally captivate our imagination as architects and city-designers. Simply with the positioning of ropes, connections a construct volume creates each unique framework of Pazar’s for market activities. What we learned from the Pazar is its contribution to intangible heritage in construction, the one-day making of a public market on secondary public spaces like watersheds, side streets or parking lots, a for a local neighborhood give a weekly pattern that amplifies the community urban engagement and social vitality.
