These aesthetically captivating and functional terrazzo designs honor the city’s culture. Complex logos in the rotunda incorporate abstract images composed of symbols of Louisville, from bourbon barrels and baseball bats to jockey helmets and horseshoes. The Pegasus constellation within the Milky Way galaxy is depicted directly under a wire sculpture of the mythological winged horse, representing both flight and the city’s rich history in horse racing. Playing roles in this engaging narrative are 32 colors of epoxy terrazzo and 31,000 linear feet of divider strip.
