Eileen Gray was an Irish furniture designer and architect who lived the majority of her life in Paris. Between 1926 and 1929, Gray designed and oversaw the building of her first house, E1027, in Rocquebrune-Cap-Brune, on the south-eastern coast of France. E1027 is now recognised as both an iconic piece of modernist architecture and a critique of modernism's prescriptive tenets.
