This thesis concerns the design of a winery in the hills of northern California. The winer program was specifically chosen to ensure and illuminate the close partnership between landscape and building. While the industrial nature of the winery might appear antithetical to landscape setting. the production of wine necessitates a dialogue between building and site. The design is an exploration of this tension and interdependence in architectural form. historical movements in European garden design, and the work of contemporary landscape Artists are examined for examples of possible man-made interventions in the landscape. This spectrum of references shares in common the development of the potential of a site through the discernment and analysis of the character of the landscape. The winery site has a clear physical disposition from which the form of the winery and vineyards are generated. The winery design is the result of negotiations with the site, and with the building's requirements as a wine producing facility.
