“From Pyramids to Spacecraft” is a travelling exhibition by design studio Architecture and Vision, founded by Italian architect Arturo Vittori and Swiss architect Andreas Vogler. The exhibition will appear at The Goldstein Museum of Design, University of Minnesota in Minneapolis from March 14-May 2nd, 2010.
Projects shown in the exhibition include MoonBaseTwo, an inflatable space station for conducting experiments on the Moon, First and Business Class for Asiana Airlines, La Macchina di Santa Rosa di Viterbo and the MercuryHouseOne, which was presented at the Biennale in Venice in 2009 as well as many other inspiring projects ranging from product design to architecture.
Vittori and Vogler are known for their keen interest in technology and the endless beauty of the world. It is their work in the aerospace field that has challenged the way they think about life on Earth. They share the belief that respect of nature and the intelligent use and development of its resources can have a deep impact on the quality of our lives.
