The sun and its planets, including Jupiter’s spot and Saturn’s rings, are found in this high-impact astronomy-themed floor of a new school with a 100-seat planetarium. Asteroids and stars are represented by glow-in-the-dark terrazzo, and orbit rings are represented by divider strips. Cast aluminum labels for the planets and a NASA satellite are also inset in the floor. The curving corridor that crosses the school features a sine-wave in the terrazzo. The glossy 18-color epoxy terrazzo installation also includes two flights of self-supporting terrazzo stairs.
