LAP Lambert Academic Publishing This book is centered on finding possible architectural solutions to the unorganized market place in West Africa being threatened with major problems such as frequent fire out breaks, the poor condition of markets which poses a serious health and safety threat to people and their immediate environment. This book proposes a market design in Kano State as a Nigerian case study to serve as a West African model to improve the conditions of some existing markets, and also to solve the issues of multi ethnic, religious and class difference by creating an organised market place as a liminal place. This book is targeted at designers and planners.
