In her debut work, the house E.1027, which was built in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin on the Mediterranean between 1926 and 1929, the Irish architect Eileen Gray (1878–1976) designed almost all the parts herself. The installation of the Master Bedroom in the passage of the Akademie building at Pariser Platz gives the visitors an immediate idea of the comprehensive architectural concept of an unjustly neglected pioneer of modernism.
