Isabel Rivas and Javier Ureña 1 have recently won the first prize of the competition LA & W Landscape Architecture & Wine. WINE, Gastronomy and Culture have traditionally been linked to Spain. The vineyards have created a unique landscape in La Rioja, also the culinary art has a great tradition in this region.
So the aim of the proposal is to create a place where these items can be put together in a sort of "wine pairing": cultural events for the local population, a culinary experience for visitors and a great opportunity for young chefs, all these items around the wine, in summary, a catalyst.
"We are not looking for an icon, or a luxury hotel. We propose an "engine" that active the region in different ways. We're not trying to set a building in the landscape, but building with the landscape. "
