Window panels for McDonalds


COMMISSSIONED FOR THE MCDONALDS RESTAURANT AT 480 UNIVERSITY AVENUE, TORONTO

The 3000 square feet of  panels were designed to allow the people inside to see out, but to preserve the dignity of the street by obscuring restaurant activities.

The design is inspired by a combination of ikat weaving and the stock market report.

The 28, 21′ high panels were fabricated by cutting slits in the thermal veil, weaving through the metal strips, and gluing into place. The work was completed in 10 weeks, from design to installation.
