Sponsored by the Wood Design Council, the project involved a competition for innovative wood construction. The program required participants to locate and design an open air farmer’s market with structural components highlighting the innovative use of wood.
The architect's design concept was the creation of an icon associated with a bountiful harvest and an endless supply of produce. The symbolic use of the cornucopia form became a tribute to the determination of the Boston vendors that had kept the Haymarket alive for the past century.
