Vhils, the alias of portugese artist Alexandre Farto, has completed a high-relief composition on the façade of the GS1 portugal headquarters in Lisbon. Vhils? work ? photographed here by Fernando Guerra ? has been integrated into the architecture of the site, which has seen a complete overhaul by promontorio architects over the past two years. On a system of 49 pre-moulded concrete panels fixed to the building on three sides, the artist has inscribed an intricate, bas-relief illustration that changes in character as it interacts with the sun over the course of the day.
