Our intention is to build a cultural center to be financed through vine and olive production. Such center will act as an interpretation school for tourists and visitors.

The initial idea is based on the moving water that emerges from earth, alterering the landscape and transforming itself into the different elements of the cultural landscape.

Such a process creates architectonic elements of smooth undulating and organic shape in harmony with their contexts from which it weaves a web of relationships through the desired expression. Semiotic and formal expression at once depending on its shape and function.

From 2000 we created "the workshop-subject of Architecture V". In which students develop final works or graduate thesis focusing environmental concerns in order to make sustainable architecture and planning projects.

In 2003 period, the subject was "sustainable places for wine ways", Mendoza is a wine land with the following objectives:
Propose urban and architectural innovative solutions considering human activity and ecosystem.
Incorporate sustainable principles to material selection.
Incorporate renewable energy as integral part of architectural project.
Research about new structural solutions looking energy efficiency.

This project fulfills objectives presented and achieve architectural sites with creativity in a environmental context.
