Beatriz Colomina, professor of architecture and founding director of the Program in Media and Modernity at Princeton University, explores Le Corbusier's complex relationship with the architect and designer Eileen Gray and his obsession with E.1027, the seaside villa Gray built at Roquebrune Cap in 1929.

Colomina also discusses the central role of Le Corbusier's Cabanon, built on the adjacent property.
