Architects and designers around the world revere the name of Eileen Gray. Yet very little has been known about the life of this extraordinary woman — a gap that is being dutifully filled by this first full-scale biography by documentary filmmaker Peter Adam, a long-standing friend. Adam traces the evolution of her theories in drawings and important articles, translating and reproducing much work never published before or largely inaccessible.
