Community is forged between disparate groups of residents through the collective responsibility of a Sunday market in the square.
An unusual block condition.
Previously a ring of residential buildings encased a core of industry. However industry gradually became displaced, and the core became redundant.
A transition occurred when residential development encroached within the block's boundaries. Now a collection of buildings exist that fail to address each other, and merely serve to optimise for their own condition.
This creates a series of fragmented and hermetic spaces.
A communal cavity is introduced to the programme.
By providing public facilities, the aparments become additive to the block.
