Event description

Description

Explore with us how women engaged with architecture around the turn of the twentieth century in order to produce professional identities. This session focuses on two iconic buildings: the Jugendstil Photo Studio Elvira in Munich (1896 by August Endell) and E-1027 (1926-1929) built in the south of France by Eileen Gray with Jean Badovici. We discover the ways in which the personal and the professional coincided in these bold architectural designs. Speakers are Sabine Wieber (University of Glasgow) and Birkbeck’s Tag Gronberg and Patrizia di Bello.

This event is part of Birkbeck Arts Week 2017 - see the full programme here.
