1176. The Central Market of Phonom-Penh, Cambodia















Dear Brian,

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.

Regards,
R
