500 x 40’ terrazzo floor
Fabricator: Advance Terrazzo

Daniel Martin Diaz combined natural and geometric patterns to create a ten color terrazzo floor design. The patterns shift from richly-colored blossoms and winding ivory vines to crimson diamonds leading to a swirling geometric mandala at mid bridge. The floor’s 34,398 pounds of aggregate includes abalone shell, native desert stones and recycled glass. The terrazzo was poured in place between 36,740 linear feet of cut aluminum strips.

Public Art project was commissioned by the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture Public Art Program with Aviation percent for art funds.
