Field of the research: 651.02. Theory and history of architecture.

Purpose of the thesis: evaluat ion of the forming ident ity of the winery complexes of the Republic of Moldova in relation to their technological content and the opening of the complexes’ spaces to the public through the prism of the national traditions and of the universal practice of implementing new architectural strategies.

Objectives of the research: diachronic and synchronic highlight ing of the particularit ies of the architecture of the winery constructions that contributed to the creation of the winery image; conceptual approach of the phenomenon of the emergence of contemporary winery complexes; research of the most represent ative complexes characterized by conforming to the current requirements of identity development of architecture; establishing the particularities of formation of their architecture with highlighting the evolution stages in functionally different areas: technological and recreational; defining the main characteristics of the binomial: environment – winery complex; determining the specific principles constituting the architectural image of modern winery complexes.
