Hotel Marques de Riscal, Spain


SPAGNA

Architect Frank Gehry specialises in buildings that appear to be in the act of disassembling themselves, and the Hotel Marqués de Riscal in Elciego, in the depths of Rioja country, is an experiment along those wavy lines. Its astonishing roof is wrought in silvery steel and golden and lilac titanium, colours inspired by the silver caps, gold wire mesh and purple contents of a Marqués de Riscal bottle. But the liquescent forms of the rooftop also evoke the pleasures of wine in general. The building is, in other words, a semi-abstract snapshot of some rich Gran Reserva swirling around the broad bowl of a thin-stemmed glass.
