Norman Foster’s Sublty-Designed Winery In Bourdeaux

Contemporary architecture can be a race to be iconic and Instragrammed, which isn’t inherently bad but certainly doesn’t make for the best guiding priority in every new building. That’s why I enjoyed covering this winery designed by Lord Norman Foster’s Foster + Partners: it’s elegant and simple, blending with the two hundred year old buildings around it. But that doesn’t stop the design from having modern features, such as intricately-detailed steel hidden under its roof.
