Michele de Lucchi and Windowology

Michele De Lucchi (Architect)

Michele de Lucchi is a leading Italian architect who has been active in his field since the 1980s.

The drawings he created for his interview with the Window Research Institute were selected for use as the main visuals of the YKK AP Windowology 10th Anniversary Exhibition and Symposium. A special exhibition of two of Mr. de Lucchi's paintings was also conducted at the Windowology Exhibition held at Spiral.

At the Windowology Symposium, Mr. de Lucchi participated in the panel discussion on "The Roots of Windowology" and prepared a lecture on "The World Through the Window." He now speaks once again on the allure of windows as he looks back on the Exhibition and Symposium.
