Eileen Gray: A House Under the Sun
Meet Eileen Gray, the architect behind the monumental E-1027 and pioneer of the Modern Movement in architecture.
In the South of France, 1924, construction began in earnest on a villa by the sea. Nearly a century later, E-1027 has become a design milestone and the creator, Eileen Gray, a pioneer of Modernist design and architecture.
During the dazzling Années folles in 1920s Paris is where Gray's work reached new heights of innovation. Gray sought to create art that has both functional and sensual, leading her to build the most daring work of her career. But a lifetime of being overshadowed by male peers nearly saw her omitted from its history.
With exquisite visuals and a considered narrative, A House Under the Sun brings to life the tale of a young Irish designer, a true visionary and her strive for artistic excellence.
