SteelUsing weathered steel, or Cor-Ten, eliminates maintenance needs, like painting. This material is used to create walls, bridges, treads and whatever you can imagine. It has even become more common in civic spaces. How to start picking materials: With so many materials to choose from, I recommend considering walkways first, and then selecting materials based on the future of the project and the experience you want to create. For inspiration get out of the showroom and take a walking tour of your city with your camera. Today's public spaces are being developed by talented designers and are great places for gleaning ideas on space and material use.
