The process of the wine is particularly remarkable by the nobility of the product: at first fruit of the earth, in outcome an object manufactures desirable. The museum, by its duality internal / outside, carries in its morphology the route of the Grape in to the Wine, the Nature in the City. That is why the museum becomes integrated into its environment of natural amphitheater, directed to the city of Santiago, as one opened and evolutionary structure. The elliptic surrounding wall of gabions integrates the volumes of access into the park, the volumes of services and restaurant, as in a natural field of vineyards without changing their usage. It is possible to taste, finally in height, the product the earth in the high terraces of the tower, the recognizable symbol of the Museum and of the City.
