With gradually development of people’s behavior patterns, people’s demand for markets has changed. Market is not only a place where people gather for commodity exchange, but a space for living and social interaction. The market has gradually become the center of daily life. However, most of China’s urban renewal has forgotten the essence of urban life, neglected the response to people’s ordinary life, weakened the inclusion of space of different nature. The main purpose of this paper is to take the market as the research object and reflect on the current marketplace. In this context, the hypothesis has been developed: the market is the mixed-use complex in the city, here people’s daily activities develop. By reflecting the phenomenon of the market transformation in China, this study explores how the market can be developed into a public space by promenade. In addition, promenade provides us with a way to think about architecture and city, which starts from people’s perception and creates new possibilities for the city in a local rather than a whole way. In this paper, I explore the role of the promenade street and how it can be applied to the market, taking special emphasis on how promenade can create a transition space for the contemporary life. Finally, This market project aims to create a market complex, which integrates people’s daily needs and combines different kinds of activities and space.
