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.
Prior to the screening, Josie Holden Bulla and Christine Haynes will provide opening remarks. After the screening, a panel discussion moderated by Josie Holden Bulla will discuss the film. The panel includes Kathryn Horne, Kristina Held and Veronica DeVita.
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.
