From Pyramids to Spacecraft

exhibit imageThe traveling exhibition From Pyramids to Spacecraft will be shown at the Robert A. Deshon and Karl J. Schlachter Library for Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) April 20 – May 15, 2012. The exhibit features selected projects by the design studio Architecture and Vision, founded by Italian architect Arturo Vittori and Swiss architect Andreas Vogler, with offices in Munich, Germany and Bomarzo, Italy.

Vittori and Vogler have worked together since 2003 and have received numerous important international recognitions. In 2006, their prototype for an extreme-environment tent, ‘DesertSeal’ (2004), became part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Vittori and Vogler were named Modern-day Leonardos in the same year by the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago for the exhibit “Leonardo da Vinci: Man, Inventor, Genius.” They have both worked in the aerospace field and this challenges the way they think about life on Earth. They share a keen interest in technology and the endless beauty of the world.

Arturo Vittori and Andreas Vogler will open the exhibition on Friday, April 20, at 5 pm at the DAAP Library.
