ARCHITECT'S

Completed in 1929, E-1027 was the first major architecture project by Gray, an Irish architect who was one of the pioneers of the modernist movement. Gray designed E-1027 in collaboration with her partner, Romanian architect and critic Jean Badovici. The name of the house is a reference to their names – E stands for Eileen, while 10, 2 and 7 relate to the alphabetical positions of the rest of the couple's initials: J, B and G.
Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the property stands on pilotis, with a flat roof and reinforced-concrete structure. The property is now considered to be one of the most important buildings of the international style. Gray also designed all the furnishings for the house.
Gray and Badovici separated shortly after the house was completed. Le Corbusier visited the house several times during the 1930s and lived in the house for long periods during 1937 and 1938. During this time he painted bright murals on many of the white walls of E-1027, which angered Gray.
