Façade of Grainhouse

Hines | 2024

Hines and ‘Perspective – Art in Architecture’ commissioned the People’s Picture to create a new site-specific artwork for their new London Headquarters, Grainhouse located in Covent Garden.

The installation brings individuals and communities together to celebrate their unique legacy. This artwork is made up of over 2,500 images that tell the collective history of Hines and Grainhouse, with a special focus on themes of people, places and sustainability. Images were meticulously selected by the artist from the Hines archive comprising over 50,000 images. The final artwork is composed of over 2,500 individual images one from every Hines project highlighting staff and people in each window.

“Crafted as a testament to Hines’ presence in Europe, this photographic mosaic is part of our European corporate headquarters in Covent Garden. 

It is a stunning piece that serves as a conversation starter for both employees and visitors, inviting them to explore the thousands of individual images of our people and assets which are intricately woven into its design. It was a pleasure to collaborate with Helen and her team and we are extremely happy with striking collage.”
