‘L’Architecture vivante’, the French-language quarterly magazine for avant-garde architecture, was published in France from 1923 to 1932. In 2006 Editions Imbernon published the first identical reissue of a famous special edition of the magazine, the 1929 winter issue devoted to E.1027 House by the Sea, the iconic villa designed by Eileen Gray. At the time this was within the context of the rescue and restoration of the villa, initiated by the Fondation Le Corbusier and the French Ministry of Culture, among others. This second reissue, published in 2015 and with English translations of the original French texts, marks a new phase for the site as it is opened to the public.
