Old-school workmanship, hand-seeding of aggregate, and design detailing characterize this 11 color, 215,000 square foot epoxy terrazzo installation. Poured with a minimal use of divider strips, the freeform design was inspired by the tide pools and boardwalks of San Diego’s Point Loma Beach and represents the movement of the surf and sea foam on water and black sand. Water jet-cut metalwork around the life-size artificial trees and the innovative use of jelly bean-glass aggregates add further notes of interest to the installation.
