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. Dzierzawska's exquisite visuals bring to life the tale of a young Irish designer whose dedication and desire to create came to flourish during the 'Annees Folles' of early 20th century Paris.

Recensioner i media

Eileen Gray's A House Under the Sun is not only a memoir of the artist herself but an exploration of her work and the development of her practise. * Waterstones Aberdeen on Instagram * Aided by Zosia Dzierzawska's muted illustrative palette, there's a time-capsule pleasure in this retelling, thanks to the heartening effect of seeing Gray's passions unfurl and the quiet-but-pointed meditation on past erasures of women. It's a timely do-over: for Gray, but also for architectural history. * Urbis Magazine * Almost 100 years on, Eileen Gray's structure has become a monument for modern design. However, her story was eclipsed by the men with whom she collaborated. Here, the focus is back on Gray & her design. * @pbooksblogger on Twitter *
