    Bronze in Architecture/Buildings

Big industrial space that resembles a prison like structure. Located in France and built in 1950, Chai à Vin is a wine storage facility consisting of 250 tanks with a total capacity of 100.000 hectoliters of wine.

Reginald Van de Velde (Belgium, 1975) scouts the unknown & unseen. As a wanderer of wastelands he journeys all over the world, trying to capture the momentum of splendour still undisturbed by the turmoil and temptations of modern society. He is a vagabond for lost beauty, a chronicler of forgotten magnificence.
