Eventscape engineered, fabricated and installed this 60-foot-wide by 10-foot-high Public Art feature wall in Toronto, part of the landscape design for a new condo project. The design plays with opacity by combining and layering perforated metal with an aluminum pattern, plus silhouettes that resemble urban dwellers and household pets.
The goal was to create an art feature that would beautify the space and obscure the old brick wall behind it that was adjacent to the building side entrance.
A total of 600 square feet, this wall consists of fourteen 3/4-inch aluminum panels. Individually, each water jet cut panel is 5 feet wide by 10 feet tall. The figures are brushed aluminum and powder coated with a clear anti-graffiti coating, attached with vandal proof hardware.
Eventscape installers used a tele-handler to position the large-scale panels into place. Site-welding of the post base plates was also required on site.
This feature wall was a welcome addition to the Church street neighbourhood. It was an instant hit amongst the condo residents who came out to take selfies with the fence almost immediately after install.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
