Man-made Marvel

Peregrine Winery in Gibbston Valley, Central Otago, was one of five winners of the world’s biggest and best architectural award – the Architectural Review’s ar+d Emerging Architecture prize – for 2004. The London-based award was inaugurated in 1999 and offers £10,000 in prize-money. The stunning winery was designed by Wellington firm Architecture Workshop. Architectural Review: The huge, calm gently curving silvery canopy floating over the massive base, all set among the orderly vineyards, makes an irresistible and poetic vision of civilization amid wild nature, and the jury was unanimously convinced by it.
