Bodega – Enological Metabolism

Thursday 2 – Thursday 16 July 2015

Bodega – Enological Metabolism centres its research on the associations that exist between wine and architecture in order to identify the influences they have on one another.

The workshop will run as two simultaneous experiments: an exploration of the senses, using wine as a raw material, which occurs as 1:1 installations to empirically test and provoke unusual sensorial effects on the body; the other, initiated from a methodological understanding of the winery as a machine, will dissect techniques and technologies involved in enological processes, leading to the speculative design of alternative winery models. Using digitally advanced techniques, the latter explorations will take the form of large-scale maps, models and prototypes.


The deadline for applications is 29th June 2015.
