A Tuscan winery has been shortlisted for the prestigious Mies van der Rohe 2015 award, which is the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture and is presented every two years.
The grand prize is €60,000, with the winner receiving a sculpture of the award’s namesake Mies van der Rohe’s German Pavilion. This symbolises the main objectives that led this award to be created; excellence and innovation in constructional and conceptual terms.
The Antinori Winery is located in the hills of Chianti, half way between Florence and Siena, right in the heart of Tuscany and a short distance from some of our luxury Tuscany villas. Merging the building and the rural landscape to symbolise the relationship between wine and the earth was an important aspect of the design.
