The Museum’s flagship building has 10,000 square feet of epoxy terrazzo using 40 colors, 190 water-jet cut strip-less pieces, 90 solid zinc stars, a 13 foot ellipse with several smaller circles and ellipses, a 250 foot ramp, and two precast terrazzo staircases. Each tread of the grand staircase included nine 3″ diameter glass roundels. The landing was made up of three pieces and had 95 roundels. Because of concerns over vapor transmission, the floors were bead blasted, and then a high grade vapor barrier was installed as well as a full coverage crack suppression membrane. The strips and water-jet cut pieces were installed and then everything was tied together with the poured-in-place terrazzo. Several pieces of precast terrazzo were installed in areas that could not be reached and were hand chipped along their edges so that they appeared to have been poured-in-place with the rest of the floor.
