1924, southern France. The construction of a seaside villa begins. Less than 100 years later, the building called E-1027 is considered a milestone in design, and its author, Eileen Gray, is a pioneer of modernist design and architecture.
It was during the crazy 1920s in Paris that Gray’s work reached an unprecedented level of innovation. The drive to create art that is both functional and sensual has led her to create an extraordinary home, the most courageous work in her career.
However, living in the shadow of male colleagues and the conflict with the legendary Le Corbusier almost led to Gray being completely erased from the pages of architectural history.
The comic book by Polish cartoonist Zosia Dzierżawska and French architect Charlotte Malterre-Barthes brings closer the life and work of this remarkable artist - a true visionary who, without compromising, has always sought artistic excellence.
