1176. The Central Market of Phonom-Penh, Cambodia
French architect Jean Desbois designed this building inspired by the new central market in Leipzig (1928) although he simplified substantially its form. This is a truly remarkable building that is often seen by local residents as a kind of "artificial mountain" on this topographically flat city of Phnom Penh.
