Overview

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.

Goals

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.

Process

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.

Additional Information

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.
