Commissioned by Bike East Bay to build a temporary boat ramp at the foot of Broadway in Oakland, Robert van de Walle engineered and with Dawn Thomas fabricated a 16′ long by 8′ wide ramp that clamps to the seawall and also breaks down into a few easily transportable pieces.

The bright, non-slip white surface is used as a sponsorship opportunity. Shown here is the John Muir Health logo.
