An unusually complex job, this 27,000 square foot epoxy terrazzo floor is a publicly funded art project that demonstrates the potential of terrazzo as an artistic medium. The abstract “Starwheel” design represents the Minnesota landscape within a theme of migration. Its images refer to constellations and the region’s grass prairies and rock engravings. Silver coated mirror and mother-of-pearl aggregates evoke the reflection of stars on the surface of local rivers and lakes. Way-finding markers are layered into the design, with an image of an astrolabe set to the airport’s location. The 16-color epoxy terrazzo floor was designed, sampled and completed in just 60 days.
