2005 National Terrazzo and Mosaic Association Job of the Year Award
The focal point of the new student union was titled "Common Threads" and simulates a river converging at a central point. The university envisioned many students from different countries and the idea was to converge them at the student center. The colors were chosen to simulate colors of geographical maps and from the globe. This terrazzo floor will bring together many students of different backgrounds and ethnicity to unite as a "Common Thread."
