The death of an icon: architect Gae Aulenti


Gae Aulenti, Italian architect, Chevalier of the Légion d’Honneur in 1987, R.I.P. (Dec 4, 1927 – Nov 1, 2012)

Advice to whoever asks me how to make a home is to not have anything, just a few shelves for books, some pillows to sit on. And then, to take a stand against the ephemeral, against passing trends…and to return to lasting values. – Gae Aulenti
