Eileen Gray: A House Under the Sun

Charlotte Malterre-Barthes, Zosia Dzierzawska

Meet Eileen Gray, the architect behind the monumental E-1027 and pioneer of the Modern Movement in architecture.

In 1924, work began in earnest on a small villa by the sea in the south of France. Nearly a century later, this structure has become a monument for modern design. However, like so many gifted female artists, Eileen Gray’s story has been eclipsed by the men with whom she collaborated – this story puts the focus back on Gray and her mastery of design. Dzierżawska’s exquisite visuals bring to life the tale of a young Irish designer whose dedication and desire to create came to flourish during the ‘Années Folles’ of early 20th century Paris.
