This 36,000 square foot installation of epoxy terrazzo incorporates seven colors with marble, glass, mirror and mother-of-pearl aggregates.  The installation features 42 unique fossil artworks in zinc, and a sectioned, 160-foot water-jet cut zinc divider strip, tapering from 5” to 1/4” wide. Vibrant, flowing terrazzo guides visitors through The Crown Sky Garden on the eleventh floor, an immense therapeutic environment with live bamboo trees, fountains, and benches crafted from locally harvested logs.
