Wine Cultural Centre in La Rioja

Logroño (La Rioja). Spain.

Client: Municipality of Logroño

In association with GPD.

The landscape is open, there are plenty of views but it lacks refuge, it lacks earth depth, vertical lines and mystery. All that it lacks could be provided with an artificial crevasse, opened by taking advantage of the slope, generating a space within the earth itself.

The programme, different uses surrounding the Wine of La Rioja, that will require different visits at different times and with different goals, but that are part of a single entity. A programme that can skilfully arrange a set of components grouped around the crevasse, surging from the fertility of the soil. Some parts are inside the crevasse, others around the edge of the earth bank seeking the views; others even gaining height, to see and to be seen.
