ARCH 200B Studio Travel: Portugal 2006
This semester’s studio investigated the design of a winery and vineyard for the introduction of port production to northern California. Working with a site in Sonoma County, California, the students analyzed local vineyards and wineries to develop a program and an architectural and landscape proposition. The studio then traveled in Portugal with the assistance of Pedro Garcia of the Lusófona University in Lisbon. The class met with faculty of architecture and urban design in Lisbon, visited the historic architecture of Lisbon, the buildings of Siza and Souto de Moura, and the city of Porto. The class then researched the wineries and vineyards of the Douro Valley connected with the production of port.
