Over 100 handcrafted sea fossil-themed glass mosaics are embedded in the floor throughout this terminal. Once the mosaics were hand-placed with clear epoxy, the pigmented resins were poured through each of the designs. In public traffic areas, grand stylized waves flow between gates in the concourse areas, with a hand-broadcast blend of recycled glass and mother-of-pearl chips to represent the sun on white caps at the beach. After the completion of the floor, 225,000 square-feet of terrazzo was polished to a 3,000-grit finish. Travelers enjoy the playful colors and artistic elements that the terrazzo provides.
