The Marqués de Riscal Hotel, a 44-room hotel, restaurant, museum and enology library in Álava, Spain, was  designed by Frank Gehry and built by Ferrovial Agroman. The complex geometry of this project (which has hints of another of Gehry’s big projects – the Guggenheim in Bilbao) is complimented by metallic materials—in this case, gold and red anodised titanium, and mirror finish stainless steel.
