サグラダファミリア=聖家族賠罪聖堂。建築という領域を超えた超建築。だと思う。1883年に着工し、設計者であるガウディが故人となった今もなお建設中。この長きの間、数多くのヒトのチカラが何世代にも渡り加えられ続けているのである。その様は、紀元前から何十人ものヒトによって記された聖書のようだ。世界遺産としても名高いサグラダファミリア、空に向かって伸びている塔が印象的。その中にはワイドのかなり狭い螺旋階段がグルグルと渦巻いている。しかし、空っぽの塔も存在する。

空っぽの塔…それにはちゃんと理由がある。
サグラダファミリアのコア的要素といっても過言ではない。その空洞には最終的にホーンが吊るされるのだ。この塔の長さに匹敵するほどの長い長いホーンだ。
一般的な聖堂や教会にも鐘が吊るされているのと同様イメージである。ただ他と異なるのはその特異な形状から派生する音の響き、そして音色だ。その音色はひとつのメロディとなってバルセロナの街中に響き渡る。この建築は建築であり、楽器だ。


サグラダファミリアの完成は50年後か、100年後か、はたまたもっと遠い未来になってしまうのか、まだ誰も知らない。できることならその音色をあの場所で聴いてみたい。

Future Systems is an architectural and design practice producing highly original work. The designs are not only architecturally innovative and visually striking, but are also pieces of highly functional equipment, inspired by both nature and technologies transferred from other industries.The practice is recognised worldwide for consistently challenging traditional preconceptions of space and demonstrating environmental concern and efficiency, without the need to compromise on contemporary form. Research is a vital ingredient for the practice and a balance between experimental and real projects is kept in order to remain at the cutting-edge of the field.

The simple plan is open and informal to reflect the lifestyle of the clients with the main seating area arranged around an open log fire. Two free standing, brightly coloured, prefabricated pods house the bathroom and kitchen services without touching the roof in order that the space is perceived as a totality. A continuous blockwork retaining wall and steel ring beam support the roof, eliminating the need for internal columns. The roof is a plywood aerofoil construction covered with turf. The curved plywood underbelly creates a softness to the interior, complimenting the organic form of the structure.

winery was designed by the Swiss architects, Herzog and de Meuron. Best known for the Tate Modern in London, their first project in the United States was Dominus. In 2001, Jaques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron were awarded the Pritzker Prize, the highest honor in architecture.Known for their innovative architectural design, their approach was to integrate the winery into the landscape, echoing our belief that the vineyard is of utmost importance. Indeed, from a distance, the gabion structure dissolves into the landscape and it has been dubbed by the locals "the stealth winery."

Filled with basalt rocks from the nearby American Canyon, the stainless steel baskets are both an aesthetic and technical choice. Generally used to retain dirt along highways, here the gabions are used to moderate the extreme temperatures of the Napa Valley.

Dominus' glass offices provide panoramic views, allowing us to follow at all times the activity in the vineyard, key to producing a great wine.
