Entry Description

Bloom Market is a farmer’s market and community
center based in Savannah, GA. On the site of a historic
iron works factory, the project incorporates the past
with new technologies to create an environment in
which to learn and grow. The concept for this project
is the phases of a dandelion. Intake, the first phase of
yellow bloom, is represented in the areas that focus on
individual well-being. The market that sells organic
produce from local sources and the Leafy Green
Machine by Freight Farms, which grows produce on-
site gives outlets for healthy eating and education. The
second phase, when seeds are produced and increase
occurs, represents the aspects of the design that
encourage growth within the community. By offering
after-school art classes for children and healthy eating
workshops, this project allows change to spread out
into the community and affect others outside the
