An Iconic Saga - Lecture on Eileen Gray tours Europe
In support of a crowdfunding campaign with only 10 days left to help restoring the furniture in E-1027, the topic of our annual Iconic Houses lecture was the Modernist villa that Eileen Gray designed and built on the French coastline. Architectural Historian Tim Benton toured Oslo, Cologne, Rotterdam, Prague and Brno in October to present the house to our fans and followers and screen a film about the restoration of the villa of the past two years. For those who have missed the lecture, it can be watched now in our video section. And Tim Benton shares with us the diary of his journey.
New Book on Haus Auerbach
The owners of the first private house that Walter Gropius designed in the Bauhaus mode, the Auerbach House in Jena (1924  made this book was made by Barbara Happe and Martin Fisher.  You can visit them by appointment. The book also recounts the moving story of the Auerbachs, a married Jewish couple who helped to shape Jena’s social life at the turn of the century, befriended Edvard Munch, fought for women’s rights, and whose house symbolized resistance to the expulsion of the Bauhaus from Weimar. Have a peek inside the book on their website.
Save Neutra's Connell House in Pebble Beach
Iconic Houses has written a letter of Support to the Committee for Historic Preservation in Monterey,to respectfully urge it to use the full extent of its authority to prevent unnecessary loss of this house. For the sake of preserving the region’s finite architectural heritage for the next generation. The Connell House is on California’s historic register and is one of the few Neutra designs in Northern California. 
In the Media
Fall has been a fruitful period for us so far, with articles harvested in high quality media. FRAME noted Iconic Houses as "the increasingly popular alternative to design museums – and even Airbnb". ELLE DECOR Italy described us as "The exclusive club of iconic 20th century homes to rent, visit or save". And Architectural Digest Spain announced the recent annual lecture tour in an appealing article on Eileen Gray's E-1027. Enjoy!
