Architecture and Vision’s traveling exhibition ‘From Pyramids to Spacecraft’ will be on view from April 10 – 22, 2012 at the Italian Cultural Institute in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia. The traveling exhibition 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 been working together since 2003 and received a number of important international recognitions. In 2006, their prototype for a 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 exhibition “Leonardo da Vinci: Man, Inventor, Genius.” They share a keen interest in technology and the endless beauty of the world. They have both worked in the aerospace field and this challenges the way they think about life on Earth. Arturo Vittori and Andreas Vogler will open the exhibition on Thursday, May 10, 2012, 6:30 pm.
