Program Description:

Join the She Builds Podcast as they delve into the life and work of Kathleen Eileen Gray, a pioneering architect, designer, and artist, whose contributions to architecture and design have been largely overlooked. Eileen Gray was born in Ireland and went on to become one of the first women admitted to the Slade School of Arts in London. She later became interested in architecture and created an informal internship for herself, reading books, taking drafting lessons, and visiting construction sites. Through the episode, listeners will learn about Eileen Gray’s groundbreaking designs, her struggles as a woman in a male-dominated industry, and her contributions to the modernist movement. From her iconic E-1027 house to her innovative furniture and textile designs, Eileen Gray’s work continues to inspire architects, designers, and artists around the world. This episode is a must-listen for anyone interested in the history of architecture and design, and for those looking to learn from the trailblazing career of Eileen Gray.
