These public art installations made from terrazzo are set in Florida’s busiest airport and see some 45 million passengers yearly. The terrazzo installers collaborated with artist Scott Parsons to create four floors celebrating local attractions that greet passengers entering the main terminal. Each floor radiates from its center and enjoins numerous motifs that unify the set of designs, suggesting a journey connecting the landscapes -the Wellness Garden, the Tech Garden, the Fun Garden, and the Space Garden.
The designs integrate 68 deep, saturated colors of epoxy terrazzo blended with glass and mirror, and intricate aluminum waterjet-cut patterns, with resin and aggregates supplied by Terrazzo & Marble-Supply Companies.
