The White Meat Market

The building complex is an axisymmetrical construction with the meat and pork market as the central building. Together the 2-storey market with saw-tooth roofs and the continuous central building form a U-shaped and broad square, Flæsketorvet (the Pork Square). The square is encircled by a row of 2-4 storey houses. Architecturally, the building complex is an early representative of the simple idiom of international functionalism. The market is listed for protection.

Poul Holsøe was City architect and responsible for the site in collaboration with Curt Bie and Tage Rue.
