These buildings covered in vibrant fabric while under construction is the subject of Singapore based photographer Peter Steinhauer fascinating series called “coocoon”. This traditional method, where construction sites are wrapped in colorful mesh material, is employed in Hong Kong to prevent debris from falling onto and littering the streets below. A bamboo cage is erected first and the fabric is wrapped around to catch falling debris and contain dust that escapes during construction. Similar methods are employed during constructions in India, but I have never seen anything of such scale and color. Green and beige seems to be the popular color of choice, while yellow and blue prove harder to find.
