Eileen Gray: Nonconformist
Presented by Adam Cook of SHOP
September 20, 2022
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Brought to you by the Interior Architecture Committee
Nearly forgotten in her own time and only re-discovered in the 1960’s, Eileen Gray is now regarded as one of the most influential designers of the Twentieth Century.
This presentation provides a high-level overview of Eileen Gray’s life and work, which spans different eras and aesthetics, as well as her lasting impact on Modernism.
Of particular interest is the story of a house named “E1027”: a building obsessed over by Le Corbusier, used as target practice by German soldiers, and which later became the site of murder, graffiti, and neglect.
