‘More than a movie, more of a movement’ says Mary McGuckian about the way in which the many worlds of Eileen Gray contribute to this project.
Indeed, The Price of Desire exists as just one part of the #EileenGrayProject, an ambitious and multi-faceted celebration of Gray’s life and work. Additional elements of the project are detailed below.

Gray Matters, a companion documentary by Marco Antonio Orsini, explores the long, fascinating life and complicated career of architect and designer Eileen Gray, whose uncompromising vision defined and defied the practice of modernism in decoration, design and architecture.
Eileen Gray’s original villa e1027, Maison Bord de Mer was finally opened to the public on May 1st 2015. A limited series of exact-replica, fully furnished, turnkey modular villas are soon to commence construction and installation.
e1027: a virtual experience
E1027 is a supernatural love story, told as a first person video game. With a focus on exploration, the player will uncover the mystery of the villa by the sea; of what dark events have taken place inside this unique house over the decades and what message the spirit that remains in the house is resolute to communicate.
The game explores the universal human emotions of greed, jealousy, and love that connect us all. Fragments of story are uncovered when exploring the various rooms, as the house shifts between three distinct periods.
An interactive non-fiction game for PC and iPad that pushes the emotional boundaries of narrative experience with the vivid tale of Eileen Gray’s pioneering architectural work, e1027.
