Ken Greig delivers key-note speech

January 2017

Ken recently opened the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA) conference with a key-note speech on ‘Professionalising Markets’. His greatly well received talk discussed the context of markets and market trading today, as well as our journey as a practice to markets as a key specialism and the essential elements we believe to be important to market design and place-making.

Many thanks to NABMA for the invitation to speak again at a future conference.  We look forward to hearing further feedback of the continued work and research being undertaken in the UK’s market sector.

GSA TEAM visit Madrid Markets…

GSA TEAM visit Madrid Markets

December 2016

In the lead up to Christmas, Marta Lorzano led the GSA team on a hugely enjoyable study tour of the rich diversity of contemporary and traditional Spanish markets in Madrid.

Our visit enabled us to experience vastly contrasting markets, from the more tourist-based San Miguel (not dis-similar to the current manifestation of our own, local, Borough Market, in Southwark) – to the San Fernando ‘Neighborhood Market’ in Lavapies.

A spectacular example of a modern market that works both as a ‘destination’ for locals and tourists alike, was San Anton. The quality of the building and creation of well-orientated, flexible and robust trading areas created a successful mix of retail, produce, with a strong food and beverage offer.

The trip reaffirmed many of the key principles we have come to perceive as critical to successful market place trading, both in the UK and further afield.

Ultimately, however, there is – and can be – no set formula.  A successful market, by its very nature, will always be a product of its place and people.

Our team took tremendous inspiration from the variety and mix of Madrid’s markets and we continue to build on our-research based understanding of markets as a whole…
