There are dozens of roving markets in Paris.  From the few we’ve seen so far, the market stalls use the same structural framing system that anchor into the ground.  Does this standardized organizational system restrict market vendors from adapting to their own needs?  How are these organizational patterns established in the first place?  Do they respond to or impact market surroundings?  Do the structural frames migrate from one market to another?

Irene,

This system seem simple and efficient and hold up well for these or other outdoor applications. While these don’t seem too dissimilar to scaffolding systems, we, unfortunately, did not go into the specifics of finding the canopy system’s manufacturer.

Good luck with your project!
