Richard Murphy reveals competition designs for Chinese whisky distillery
Richard Murphy Architects has unveiled early competition designs for a major whisky distillery HQ, hotel and conference centre in China
The proposal, for a site in Szechuan Province where Lang Jiu whisky is distilled, was presented to the client last month alongside rival plans by a Californian practice. Amendments to both schemes are now under way.
The building would sit above the stunning gorge of the Red River as it flows past the small town of Erlang in a remote corner of Szechuan, with Murphy’s design referencing the shape of traditional Chinese landscape bridges.
