Using custom-designed steel tabs and a map etched into the existing sidewalk from end-to-end, a walk across a pedestrian bridge becomes a walk around the world. Covering 24,900 miles of vast and disparate regions of the globe, World Walk is an immersive atlas, a slice through the globe touching far-reaching regions, yet framed by and connected back to this pedestrian bridge in San Antonio.
