Last night Alan Faena was interviewed by Tina Brown to celebrate his new book, Alan Faena: Alchemy & Creative Collaboration: Architecture, Design, Art. The conversation, held at the Rizzoli Bookstore in Manhattan, covered the author’s life and inspirations.
The tome is a highly personal look into Faena’s story, beginning as a boy in Argentina and chronicling his years as a fashion designer, a gardener in Uruguay, and then as an urban alchemist behind the immensely successful Faena Buenos Aires and Faena District Miami Beach. After the talk guests — including George Cortina, Luna Paiva, Sebastian Faena, and Ian Mellencamp, among others — celebrated at an afterparty at Undercote.
Alan Faena: Alchemy & Creative Collaboration: Architecture, Design, Art is available now via Rizzoi.
