The orderly geometric design in this grand entrance is beautifully appropriate for the space and architecture. Over 100 hulien green marble tiles are embedded in the intricate, timeless pattern of the terrazzo floor. Each octagon was field-fabricated with hand-bent and carefully mitered aluminum strips, using only whole or half marble tiles, without control joints within the pattern. Four subtle terrazzo colors, a total of 4,600 square feet, accent the tiles with a combination of marble, mother-of-pearl and mirror chips. Terrazzo offers an environmentally friendly and extremely durable choice for academic settings.
