Frequent floods have deprived the locals of an access to the wild and beautiful landscape. For this project, TERRITOIRES chose the radical and minimal system of a wooden path, which is as smooth as glass. This path extends across the two neighboring villages, frequently teasing and eventually crossing the river halfway via a footbridge. The geometric contrast between the sinuous river and the path’s rigid lines give its visitors an astonishing sense of levitation, without ever touching the ground. This landscape is rediscovered through a radical and uncompromising aesthetic, with minimal human intrusion.
