Central Market, After Renovation

Posted: November 20, 2011 in Architecture

Central Market built in 1937 and completely renovated in 2011 is one of Darryl Collins’s Favorite architectures in Cambodia. I took the photos below for some months ago.

This quintessential southeast Asian colonial Art Deco market was built on reclaimed land over a former swamp. Its moderne design and the technology employed in its construction, ranks it as one of the most important 30s buildings remaining in Phnom Penh. Designed by Desbois and engineered by Chauchon, it still functions as the main market. One of the shopping highlights of Phnom Penh, a lively, bustling affair filled with fresh daily goods, clothes and household wares, it has most recently undergone a facelift orchestrated by the Phnom Penh Municipality.
