Terrazzo floor tiles include text and shoe imagery. Humorous text and the placement of the shoes create a whimsical and approachable art piece that swirls around the lobby and leads to the outside where the shoes wander down the street. Different shoe styles mark the entry to the elevator on each floor to serve as a memory device for patrons. The appropriate shoe image is then reused as a part of the signage  at the elevator call buttons.
