Mosaic

The facade of the Hilton Garden Inn, 66 East Wacker Place. Halvoson and Partners / GREC Architects, 2015.

“Visible from the Chicago River, the building rises to distinction sporting a custom 20,000 square foot metal mosaic facade. The 250 foot mosaic was inspired by the location of the building, just off the Chicago River view corridor. The design team created an image pixelization of sunlight reflecting off the river and used metal panels in five shades of grey to develop this dynamic image.” — Architect Magazine
