In collaboration with Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes and Buzzo Spinelli Architecture our sbp team in Paris was awarded first prize to design a new pedestrian bridge in Bastia, Corsica.
The 450 meter long, barrier free walkway runs around the citadel of Bastia providing a shortcut between the citadel and the city for tourists and residents. It upgrades the surrounding area by offering a breathtaking view over the picturesque city and the ocean.
The cantilvevering primary structure will be anchored into the rock as it has to withstand enormous forces of the surf.
Construction will start in 2019.
