Projects : Golden Gate Bridge Exhibit

Golden Gate Bridge Outdoor Exhibition


Full-size Footprint of one Tower Leg

Outline of full-size footprint of one leg of one tower embedded in the paving; provides a sense of scale for the visitor (the nearer South Tower being 0.4 miles and the North Tower 1.2 miles away). Companion (#2) panel explains the outline. A “discovery” or surprise for the visitor and a photo opportunity.

STATUS: On hold until final exhibition installion.

Early concept drawing by Reitherman, showing how the footprint would actually be comprised of many individual tiles to create the footprint.

3-D conceptual design showing footprint in planned exhibition area.
