Wine + Architecture (6)

6- Ysios, Laguardia

The view from the balcony of Samaniego Park, in Laguardia, which was already breathtaking, has been enhanced with the construction of Bodega Ysios at the foot of Cantabria mountains. This building needs to be seen from the distance to fully understand what Calatrava means when he says that this winery's roof echoes the shape of the sierra above. For this building is, indeed, one half of a conversation -the landscape being the other.
Brilliant clear idea, isn't it? Calatrava kept it simple and efficient here, and he won. For an architect to whom less is never too less, this is, at least, lesser.
