Notes and sketches on a film story, Interplanetary Architecture (Folder 1 of 7)


ca. 1970-1971


The material in the next 7 files (AP148.S1.1970.PR02.001.1 through AP148.S1.1970.PR02.001.7) was contained together in a handmade folder titled "AI Storyboard". The material in this folder has been separated for preservation purposes, and the original folder has been retained.

This file contains notes and sketches on the film idea, including the story, visuals, music and cinematography. Also includes clippings, both of which refer to imagery and ideas of an earth-moon highway or contest for a highway, as well as the first architectural competition in space ("Primo concorso di architettura nello spazio"). Also includes a small viewer of an Escher image.
