Honorable Mention. Wine Museum Santiago de Chile Cerro San Cristobal 2010, Honorable Mention

The challenge for this competition is to design a Museum that has XX Century History of Wine exhibition areas and also be a landmark for the city of Santiago. To this end, the plot where this project will take place is located at Cerro San Cristóbal, since this hill is the most natural and, at the same time, urban backdrop to lay out a natural/artificial product such as wine. This is an amazing opportunity for the winning architect to become well known in a potentially growing market such as design of wine cellars and vineyards of all South America.


Honorable Mention. Vertical Zoo in Puerto Madero Buenos Aires 2009, Honorable Mention

Design Challenge:
This innovative zoological park will be located at the Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve behind the center of Puerto Madero and just a few blocks from the Government House (Casa Rosada). The project should take the form of an identifiable vertical element which seeks to establish itself as a landmark, imposing its presence within the context of the horizontal horizon of the reserve and observable to those who use the river, in the same way that the high residential tower blocks feature on the city’s edge but, as a consequence of the project’s function, in a natural and organic manner. This vertical element at least 100 meters high should be versatile enough to house a number of distinct functions related to education and recreation, as well as functioning as a home for the animals and the administrative services associated with the running of a zoo. However, competitors remain free to produce totally experimental projects which address extremes as diverse as the subordination of architecture to the urban and natural profile or the creation of a new model designed to serve as a way of redefining the idea of what is “monumental” in the context of the debate between the urban and the scenic.
