In front of the Fireplace of the “Stanze italiane”, a new episode of the “Stories of New York” series, curated by Vincenzo Pascale (Long Island University in Brooklyn), this time in conversation with Aurélie Paradiso, architect and interior designer.
Aurélie Paradiso was born in Switzerland to a French-Swiss mother and an Italian father, has three passports (Swiss, Italian and American) and speaks three languages. She frequently travels to Western and Eastern Europe, North Africa, Central America and Southeast Asia, taking inspiration from the history and culture of these places for her work.
Aurélie Paradiso holds a bachelor’s degree in Architecture and Art History from Columbia University and a master’s degree in Architecture from Yale School of Architecture. She was also awarded an independent project grant from the New York State Council for the Arts and has also taught architecture and interior design in undergraduate and master’s programs at Parsons the New School for Design.
With her New York-based team, she designs custom buildings, interiors and furniture. Her work is rooted in attention to detail, craftsmanship, light and fine materials to offer a sober and timeless luxury. In the conversation she retraces her 25-year experience, between private homes and cultural projects.
