Michele De Lucchi and Windowology

Michele De Lucchi

Michele De Lucchi participated in a research project in 2005-2006 that led to the birth of Windowology. These are two paintings he made as part of his research. Also on display for the first time is a drawing he made when he took part in an interview with the Window Research Institute in 2014. De Lucchi, who believes the window is the most important element of architecture, contributed a message that reads “There is always a good reason to open a window smiling!”
