Modernism + Film: Eileen Gray – Designer and Architect

Thursday, March 15, 2018
EILEEN GRAY: DESIGNER AND ARCHITECT

Eileen Gray: Designer and Architect examines the history of Gray's architectural creations, including E.1027, one of the most famous houses in architectural history, built in Roquebrune, France, in 1926. This modernist, seaside, L-shaped, flat-roofed building with floor-to-ceiling windows and a spiral staircase, utilizes natural light and ventilation. It was designed, said Gray, for a "minimum of space and maximum of comfort." E.1027 has today been declared a French national monument and is presently being restored.
