Lobby paving

21 sq m (225 sq ft)

2009 Spectrum Award of Merit: Ceramic and Porcelain Tile

Mosaic for the lobby of the NIMET Nanoscale Research Facility at the University of Florida, Gainesville. The composition overlays three images from contemporary research within the field of nanotechnology: a carbon nanotube; the diffraction pattern of an icosahedral quasicrystal; and a network of defects in a crystal of silicon carbide.

A small, marble-sized gold tile in the middle of the mosaic refers to the scale of nanotechnology: if a nanometer were equal in size to a marble, then a meter would be equal in size to the diameter of the earth.
