Architects Mario Corea and Eugenio Tioni of Mario Corea Arquitectura recently won the competition for the design of the New Trade Fair Building in Mendoza, Argentina. Located in Mendoza’s main municipal park, their design is based on the role of the building in the construction of the city, rather than approaching the project as an isolated object in the middle of a green zone. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Field Architecture‘s goal for Bodega Bauer was to create an architecture informed by the same particularities of the earth which are embodied in the wine of the region. Siting and materiality are guided by the subtleties of sun and wind exposure, climate, the unexpected nuances of each season, and the presence and absence of water and shade.
