Wonderful Mercat Santa Caterina strikes a magical balance between local producers and consumers, contemporary architecture and tourism. The redevelopment retains its original use as a retail food market. A huge, undulating canopy covers an existing, former rundown neo-classical market in a large square within sight of the gothic cathedral. The canopy consists of a mosaic of 325,000 vividly multicolored hexagonal Spanish tiles set in mortar, "whose various colors recall a sill life of produce." It is a view that will be particularly appreciated by the residents of the neighboring apartment blocks. The roof is supported on three primary clear-span trusses that cut through, up and over the roof. But, from below, it reads as an organic timber assembly. At the opposite end from the retained arcade, an irregular latticework of timber slats brings to mind an Indonesian village hall - a typically offbeat Miralles invention and a reminder that he worked on this design before his death in 2000.

Naomi says:
It is said that "an elevator will be completed to bring visitors up from market level." We would vote ‘no’ to an elevator: the project is much more compelling knowing that you can not see the entire roof from above...
