2012 Honor Award Winner


Terrazzo Contractor

Raleigh, NC

This airport design was inspired by the theme “hand-made and mind-made,” intertwining the region’s landscape, heritage and economy throughout. A quilt pattern woven into the epoxy terrazzo pays homage to the textile industry of the area. Soothing earth-tone colors complement the terminal’s vast wood beams and open spaces. In the baggage claim, an indoor-outdoor art piece brings nature into the building, with a large oak tree and embedded glass emblems extending through a large glass exterior wall.
