Inspired by a traditional African headdress, the terrazzo is centered on the geometric pattern of the grand central space, showcasing the art on display. The design features five colors of epoxy terrazzo covering 5,000 square feet. Ten thousand linear feet of aluminum strips were bent and cut to size on-site then precisely anchored by hand on the marked slab to complete the design. Each tread and riser of the terrazzo staircase was set to give the appearance of a solid, twisting unit.
