When construction hoarding goes up in a high-traffic area, it can be a worse eyesore than an open construction pit. So designer Franc D’Ambrosio came up with an enclosure that is as useful to foremen as it is a delight for passersby. His firm’s Big Red Box arranged all of the outbuildings on a British Columbia construction site (trailers, portable toilets and other necessities) behind a bold red wall. Slots carved into the wall give workers access to fresh air and a view to the street. Artist Bill Porteous was also commissioned to paint a mural for the construction fence. ­fdarc.ca
