In the Loop is an ADA accessible ramp that gently brings visitors up to San Antonio City Hall’s entrance.


Three ADA accessible ramps ascend six-and-a-half feet over three runs to reach San Antonio’s City Hall Entrance from Plaza de Armas, with a staircase completing the rhombus's loop.


The ramp and stair converge at City Hall’s common landing, creating an entrance for all, and enclosing a grand circular opening at its center.


The circular opening hosts community activities under the shade of a grand oak tree.


The contemporary lightness of the ramp contrasts against the heavy masonry of the historical City Hall.


The addition of an accessible approach to City Hall’s east entrance offers an opportunity to enliven the Plaza de Armas in its traditional role as the heart of San Antonio.
