Counter Composition

Using Theo Van Doesburg’s Counter Composition VI painting as the basis for the plan, this flower market was an adaptive re-use project of a lumber yard fronting Sarah D. Roosevelt Park in the Lower East Side. Counter Composition used elements of earth, air, and water to create an interior that exuded lightness that contradicts the harshness of the exterior facade.
