Farshid Moussavi on Gae Aulenti and Architecture

The exhibition Gae Aulenti (1927 – 2012) is accompanied by a podcast series that explores her impact on architecture and design, and her legacy. The podcast, hosted by British design critic and author, Alice Rawsthorn, traces the evolution of Gae Aulenti through the voices of friends, curators and international architects who knew her personally or through her work. The second episode features Alice Rawsthorn in dialogue with the architect and Harvard University professor. Moussavi discusses Gae Aulenti's influence on architecture and shares her thoughts on the Italian architect's most famous project, the Musée d'Orsay.
