Koudougou Central Market 

By virtue of its size, the project provided an important training ground for local masons. The market buildings are made almost exclusively of a local material compressed earth blocks using traditional Nubian techniques of arch and vault construction. Koudougou's central market combines a covered hall with space for 624 stalls with a further 125 buildings containing 1'195 shop units, the vast majority of them small spaces of only 6.20 square metres.
