E.1027 - EILEEN GRAY AND THE HOUSE BY THE SEA
Switzerland 2024, Beatrice Minger, 88 min., OmE

Eileen Gray: an icon of modern architecture pushed into the background by Le Corbusier.

The sound of the sea can be heard in the bedroom where the architect couple Eileen Gray and Jean Badovici, who built the house known as E.1027 on the Côte d'Azur, sleep. The director Beatrice Minger portrays an almost forgotten icon of modernity. Eileen Gray had to hold her own in the male-dominated avant-garde scene around Le Corbusier, who altered the building without her consent. Michael Kohl
