This project was a real treat for us. The St. Louis Muny, the oldest and largest outdoor musical theatre in the US, is the home of one of our favorite terrazzo projects. With Missouri Terrazzo heading up the job, we helped to recreate the box office’s approximately 20′x30′ terrazzo floor, which had been damaged by burst pipes in January of 2010.
As technology has a changed since the floor was first installed in 1972, this wasn’t a matter of recutting old patterns. With the drawing from the original artist, Nancy Day, our skilled programmer, Kevin Thornburg, redrew all of the cut lines to recreate the legacy floor.
Another element adding complexity and interest to this piece is the combination of precast and poured terrazzo. Some parts were made using Creative Edge’s waterjet-cut precast terrazzo, and other areas used traditional pour-in terrazzo using our waterjet divider forms and templating systems.
