In her first work, the E.1027 house, which she built from 1926–1929 in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin on the Mediterranean Sea, Eileen Gray (1878–1976) designed almost every element herself. The walk-in installation of the bedroom in the passage of the Akademie building at Pariser Platz provides a direct visualisation of the architectural design by an unjustly neglected pioneer of modernism.

The bedroom was reconstructed at the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture, O’Neil Ford Chair in Architecture; curator: Wilfried Wang, co-curator: Peter Adam, Paris.
