This is the Architect's Tee, it's the canvas that carries our vision for an optimistic future: Michele De Lucchi's Earth Stations. It's the perfect companion to the architect's jacket or other blazers designed to give a the glimpse creativity and architecture on the layer beneath.
Just like all other Architect's Tools it is made in Italy and is also made out of 100% cotton, treated with enzymes for great softness. It also features a stylish black hanging loop on the back of the neck.
It features a big print of the Crown Station project, part of the Earth Stations research.
Crown Station.There is always a good reason to cast a metaphoric bridge between one’s own ideas and those of the others as in the Crown Station. The regal form symbolizes the triumph of the intellect. The building suspended between two cliffs houses a traditional and digital library connecting diverse ideas and innovations through the use of technology.
Earth Stations are a new typology of buildings conceived to foster productive human relationships. They are monuments to mankind and for mankind that make use of humanistic and technological knowledge to improve living conditions in a context of responsibility for the natural and the social world. They are not space stations from which to launch missions to the Moon, Mars or Jupiter. When artificial intelligence frees people from bureaucratic and repetitive chores, it will be necessary to find ways of using this new found freedom and the immense technological potential that will be unleashed. In the Earth Stations, many different functions are concentrated in one place, promoting sustainability and quality in personal and public relations, balancing spaces for individual reflection and collective engagements. The randomness of encounters initiated by walking generates optimal conditions for the most surprising discoveries. Earth Stations are designed to host continuous activity with a palimpsest of events that catalyse both attention and energy. The symbolic appeal of their external appearance and the monumentality of the internal spaces are necessary paradigms in order for the Earth Stations to be admired and experienced, able to attract and arouse pride and wonder.
