dc.description.abstract Cultural architecture is a physical of manifestation to the culture. Space is a strong way to show this manifestation, because spatial experience relates intimately with one’s mood. A good spatial experience is able to empathize with the activity occuring within the space. I chose the architecture competition for a Wine Culture Centre as my thesis topic, because I see that the experience of drinking wine that can be expressed through the architecture. I use the design of the Wine Culture Centre to demonstrate my design method and attitude towards the relationship between space and activity. I began the project by visiting the site and conducting research into the site and surrounding context. Two thousand years ago, humans began to plant grapes and make wine in Verona and today Verona continues to be one of the world’s most prolific regions for viticulture. A new wine culture centre will rebuilt around an existing winery. Within this culture center, the memory of wine and the culture of wine exist in the place all the time. Wine culture centre materializes the experience of wine into physical material. Furthermore, context, rituality and vague atmosphere are some common features in both wine and architecture and will be explored in this project. The terroir of wine shows how wine captures its context of making wine, tasting wine conveys rituality, vague atmosphere happens during drinking wine when we begin to feel a little drunk, all these similarities are transformed and applied in the spatial atmosphere and organization of the building. Moreover, natural elements are important to utilize in architectural emotion. Sunlight, rain and land are presented in architecture to evoke a connection to nature. The interaction between natural elements and architectural space allows nature to be easily experienced. In the project, I focus on the experience of visitor in the wine culture centre and the design aims to create architectural manifesto to experience of wine and terroir in Verona. en
