“Architecture and Wine in Central Europe”
July 14 – September 2, 2016
Gallery of Architecture in Brno
Starobrněnská 18, Brno
The world has fallen in love with wine. To create an attractive vineyard belongs to prestigious commissions for world top architects. The exhibition presents the most important projects from eight countries with rich wine history: Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia. The wine architecture is presented here as a cultural and social phenomenon and a link between traditional craft and modern progressive design.
The focus of the concept is to introduce the connection of new (as well as traditional) wine production methods with modern architecture and design, which is reflected in the interiors as well as in the graphic design of vignettes. The exhibition includes examples from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Germany (Saxony), Hungary, Slovenia and the north of Italy (South Tyrol). Individual wineries and wine centres are presented by means of photographs and architectural plans.
There is also an emphasis on the characteristics of the different regions and specific grape varieties, as well as on the resulting products, including a description of the production and aging of wine – both processed by traditional methods (e.g. maturation in oak barrels) and by the most modern technological processes and facilities.
The exhibition is inspired by the aesthetics of wineries. The creators of the artistic concept are the Curator of the exhibition and JFG Director Dan Merta and Architect Jakub Fišer. All the information of the exhibition available here.
