Paola Antonelli is curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at New York-s Museum of Modern Art. She is also co-curator of this year's Aspen Design Conference, whose subject is, "Safe: Design Takes on Risk." The idea for Safe grew out of an exhibit, entitled, Emergency, that Paola had prepared for MoMA. That exhibit, now entitled Safe, will go on show at MOMA in 2005.
