Why You Should Always Consult A Local

This series of photos is why as an architect, you should always consult a local person. This is the entrance way to the straw market.


It is a lovely entrance way. It encompasses the tropical theme. It is open air concept. It provides security. It is colourful. The pineapple motif is artistic.

However when it comes to functionality, it got a zero. It needed a modification. A close-up shot shows the modification:



Notice the screening. The big "OOPS" was that feral cats got in and left their poop in the stalls. Frogs got in, as well as lizards and rats.

The concept was great, however the screening could have been avoided with a design change, if the locals were asked to vet the design.
