The commission consisted of the development of the architectural project for the Concha y Toro Winery Research and Innovation Center, from the siting-the only condition was that it should be in the Maule Region, in the wine center that the winery has in the region- through the implementation of the various buildings of the program. The program consists of two laboratories -one for wines and the other agricultural-a microvinification winery, a greenhouse and an extension center. All this, grouped in a Central Plaza, a courtyard for the Microvinification winery, and access control and parking. The Research and Innovation Center is the place where the winery investigates, develops and distributes its products and new developments in the wine sector. The immediate relation of this center is to vivaria -places where clones and new grapes are developed-, vineyards and wineries. These three aspects are the source of the scientific aspects. At the same time, and at the other end, the relationship is also with the scientific world, wine producers and the academic environment. Therefore, the Research and Innovation Center is the link between these two worlds that live in the antipodes: the origin of the wine and the final consumer.
