About Gae Aulenti (Designer)
The Italian architect and designer Gae Aulenti will forever be best remembered for her work with museums, in particular her 1980-86 renovation of a Beaux Arts Paris train station to create the galleries of the Musée d’Orsay. Aulenti — whose first name, short for Gaetana, is pronounced “gae” should also be recalled for her tough intellectual spirit and for working steadily when few women found successful architectural careers in postwar Italy.
