Design Notes: Northwestern’s new pavilion floor design was intended to bring together the Organized Geometry of the architecture of Galter/Feinberg with the Fluid Curves in the architecture of Prentice. Terrazzo brought the precision of the geometric lines with the fluidity of the soft curves together, which no other material could do. The pattern not only provides an intuitive path of travel, but an interesting aesthetic that leads its visitors throughout the space daily. The art of architecture is used by connecting the functional elements that are needed to move through the space.

With terrazzo, the possibilities are endless. Let the floor be your canvas and bring terrazzo into your next project by contacting your Architectural Sales Consultant for assistance at 800.7.MARBLE or visit www.tmsupply.com.
