Along the window bays of the concourse is a colorful frieze of art glass depicting historic doorways and architectural portals found throughout San Antonio. The project includes 43 total window treatments, each a unique building facade in San Antonio. This portion of the project is a large terrazo floor design that spans the entire terminal. The concourse terrazzo floors feature medallion-shaped motifs inspired by Mesoamerican illustrations of the four cardinal directions.
