EILEEN GRAY: DESIGNER AND ARCHITECT

Eileen Gray: Designer and Architect examines the history of Gray's architectural creations, including E.1027, one of the most famous houses in architectural history, built in Roquebrune, France, in 1926. This modernist, seaside, L-shaped, flat-roofed building with floor-to-ceiling windows and a spiral staircase, utilizes natural light and ventilation. It was designed, said Gray, for a "minimum of space and maximum of comfort." E.1027 has today been declared a French national monument and is presently being restored.

TIME 

An event reception with a cash-only bar and free light bites begins at 6 p.m. in the Bechtler lobby followed by the presentation and film screening at 7 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Auditorium.

TICKETS

Tickets are $10 for the public, $8 for museum members and $5 for students (Student tickets may be purchased at the door or by phone. Must present student ID to claim). Buy tickets online, tickets may also be purchased by phone at 704.353.9200 or at the admissions desk.
