Château La Coste, Provence

Rhythm and repetition bring a sense of
order and quiet exhilaration to buildings
and landscape. At Château La Coste,
repeating forms are everywhere — in the
parallel rows of vines, in the stainless steel
fittings of the winery, in the details of the
interior architecture and in the vertical
beats of successive slender structural
columns that rise in graphic counterpoint
to the wavering lines and angles of Louise
Bourgeois’ Crouching Spider, the
immaculate attenuation of architecture
and sculpture mirrored on the surface of
the reflecting pool.
