National Museum of Health and Medicine
Silver Spring, Maryland, USA
Kling Stubbins used Sensitile Terrazzo™ interactive concrete to create a "medallion" for the National Museum of Health and Medicine. The distinctive medallion integrates the sparkling qualities of the Terrazzo material along with bronze brand elements inset to create a wow feature embedded in the floor of the entrance of this institution. Thousands of interactive light points surround and complement the museum's star field logo to create a shimmering celestial sky.
Materialization of this unique design involved exploration of methods to create, polish and finish the bronze elements that were precisely CNC-machined and inset into the formwork. The 550-pound medallion was cast, polished, finished and shipped in a special crate.
