Bonifacio / ‘Embracing history’ delivery July 2015

We won the call for tenders for the new illumination of Bonifacio citadel.

From next summer, ‘material lighting’ is set to appear gently as night falls.

It will reveal the stone in the ramparts and monumental projections, breathing life into this historic bastion. Besides enhancing the building, we have also designed a veritable pathway of light.

As a ladder of light, it will guide the spectator from the sea to the old town by bringing to life a series of sensory experiences at the sites of the citadel’s former defensive gates.

It is a project based on the notion of thresholds, of crossing, or how one can stop being a mere spectator and become an actor in one’s own experience of places.
