Aldilonda, "above the sea". Path at the foot of a historic citadel

Aldilonda, the path that becomes the destination. In Bastia, the second largest city in Corsica on the northeast coast of the island, Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes created a promenade on the sea, a path suspended between the sky and the sea at the foot of the citadel

Aldilonda means "above the sea". Dietmar Feichtinger Architects together with local architects Buzzo Spinelli, Insitu landscape and engineers from Sbp France created a path anchored in the rock, with sinuous lines, which seems to be suspended over the water, at the foot of the citadel of Bastia

Aldilonda,

Aldilonda follows the steep coastline for a full five meters above sea level onto the rock that forms the massive natural foundation of the citadel's mighty surrounding wall. The design is more of a destination than a path, offering new views of the open sea as it is suspended between the sea and sky

Aldilonda,

The soft lines of the path contrast with the massive fortress and the rock on which it is founded. The path nestles against the rock, leans against it and crosses it, merging with it and with the natural space. Along the path, there are resting places, where the path widens, and where you can enjoy the view of the sea
