Château la Coste is a vineyard in the south of France that, in addition to its wine-making program, includes major works of contemporary art and architecture across its 500 acre campus. Joining Tadao Ando, Frank Gehry, and Jean Nouvel, Renzo Piano is the latest Pritzker laureate to complete a structure for the ever-expanding complex. The ‘Pavilion of Photography’ forms a exhibition venue buried six meters below ground.
Surrounded by grapevines, the RPBW-designed building seeks to display art and preserve Château la Coste’s wine supplies. the sunken 285 square meter structure uses exposed concrete for the retaining and exhibition walls, a material choice that contrasts the glazed façades and roof canopy. ‘The partly buried building highlights the roof covered with a sail fastened to thin metal arches,’ explains the architects. ‘these arches echo the graphical layout of the grapevines, enabling to integrate the sail into the vineyard.’

I thought I would share a few pictures from my degree show at Hoxton Arches in London, which took place last week.
Planning and designing the identity for the degree show was quite a long and sometimes stressful task. We had the name and concept (showcasing the frameworks of the design process) at the beginning of the year, but visualising it was difficult and we went through a lot of designs as well as coped with a lot of setbacks that were out of our hands. Despite this, we were really happy with the final designs and the number of outcomes we produced; including tote bags, a catalogue, an A1 foldout poster, name and description labels, vinyl signage, a gif for social media, invites, and postcards.
My personal role was to write some copy for the catalogue and to proofread and edit each student’s individual profiles. I also created designs for vinyl stickers and lettering that could were used as the show’s signage, and a poster page for the A1 fold out.
It was really great to see my work up on display, and I think the space looked really exciting because everyone’s work is so varied.
Even though it was difficult at times, I’m glad I volunteered to be part of the degree show team because I’ve gained a lot of experience in different areas of a large-scale design project, as well as enjoyed working as part of a team to deal with tough deadlines and overcome problems.
I’m extremely proud of how the show turned out and the private view was a lovely way to spend my 21st birthday and celebrate 3 years of hard work towards my degree.
“How did Ginny get like this?” he asked slowly.
“Well, that’s an interesting question,” said Riddle pleasantly.
“And quite a long story. I suppose the real reason Ginny Weasley’s like this is because she opened her heart and spilled all her secrets to an invisible stranger.“
