The design of this 10,000-square-foot sand-cushion terrazzo installation in nine colors responds to the facility’s remote site and its function, reflecting local heritage. The mandala-style design, with its extraordinarily rich color saturation and consistency, refers to the sacredness of space, representing a religious Native American compass, oriented to true north. The design also responds to the shape of the architecture, deftly shifting the center of gravity of the space and infusing movement into the room. Care was required to ensure that the design could be achieved without straining the panel size requirements of sand cushion terrazzo.
