Visiting Mary McGuckian on the set of her new film, 'The Price of Desire', about the Irish born pioneering modernist designer/architect Eileen Gray and Le Corbusier. This is the house - known as E-1027 - in Roquebrune that Eileen Gray designed in the mid-1920s with her then partner, Jean Badovici. It was truly ahead of it's time. Le Corbusier later defaced the house by creating murals on some of the walls - which were much loathed by Gray.
The World Is Ever Changing

Just finished reading Nic Roeg's sort-of memoir 'The World is Ever Changing'. Very enjoyable. He's made some wonderful films - both as DP and director. My favourites: 'Walkabout' and 'Don't Look Now'. He's also made some awful ones. Recently saw 'Eureka'. Yikes!

On a recce in Berlin for a portrait shoot tomorrow. Taken to see Zentral Flughafen - the airport Hitler built in the 1930s. Extraordinary - and extensive - building which appears to be empty.
