Distance Markers

2004

Wellington City Council and the NZ Heart Foundation, New Zealand


A series of cast-iron discs, inserted into the pavement along Wellingtonʼs waterfront, marking out distance over 6.5km, starting at Queen’s Wharf. An initiative by the Heart Foundation to encourage patients to make a healthy recovery by walking: gently increasing distance, step by step. The markers are free of all other information, making them universal.


13 cast-iron markers, each 350mm diameter, placed at 500m intervals
