AA Visiting School at Barcelona


BODEGA, Enological Metabolism
ETSAB-UPC BarcelonaTech, Barcelona
Friday – Friday, July 12-26, 2013

BODEGA, Enological Metabolism workshop is the first AA School of Architecture, Visiting School organized in Barcelona.

Relying on digital diagramming and mapping, we will unfold the metabolism of wine production and dissect techniques and technologies involved in the processes. Underlining the characteristics of time information and feedback, we will recognize the potential of the use of Control Systems as an essential design tool. Equipped with analogic or digital tools, students will record quantitative information onsite to understand the variable factors that can influence wine quality. The object of this preliminary phase will be the creation of a series of drawings using digital tools to work on the cartographical representation of the mappings. Concluding the research, we will address the spatial and organizational attributes of the process to envisage, through the production of drawings, digital and physical models, potential architectural solutions for a contemporary bodega. The results will be presented on the last day of the course to a multidisciplinary panel of experts from the architecture and enological world in a public presentation.

The deadline for applications is June 14, 2013.
