Our design was based on similar interlocking tiles symbolizing the connection that the Moor and its markets creates between the people visiting it and the city. That’s why we decided adding seats in our structure so people can interact with it by sitting and meeting lots of other people. For its implementation we were thinking something in the lines of mass production because as you can see in our model above a big number of these tiles had to be made. Additionally, during our experimentation with different aggregates we noticed that using stone as aggregate was very efficient in terms of stability.
