In honor of International Women’s Day, Dr. Elena Pacenti, Director of the Domus Academy School of Design at NewSchool, talks about some international women in design who have inspired her:
“I have been very much inspired by women in design: Paola Navone and Patricia Urquiola have been among the best of their generation of designers. Grace, courage and a radical sense of beauty have left a sign in the contemporary course of design.”
