Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator of Architecture & Design, Director of Research & Development, MoMA
Paola's work investigates design’s influence on everyday experience, often including overlooked objects and practices, and combining design, architecture, art, science and technology.
In addition to her role as Senior Curator of Architecture and Design at MoMA, Paola was appointed director of a new Research and Development initiative in 2012.
She lectures frequently at high-level global conferences and coordinates cultural discussions at the World Economic Forum in Davos. A true interdisciplinary, energetic and generous cultural thinker, Paola was recently rated as one of the top 100 most powerful people in the world of art by Art Review.
For the first time in three years, the NY Chapter recognized not one, but two individuals who have made an impact in the industry. The names of the honorees, Randy Fahey, IIDA, Senior Associate Gensler New York and Hazel Siegel, Industry IIDA, Atelier Hazel Siegel, were revealed at the event, adding an element of surprise to one of the Chapter's largest and most highly anticipated events of the year.
