Adolf Loos


Publisher: Taschen ISBN: 9783836544672 Author: August Sarnitz Format: Hardcover, 96pp 260x210mm

Adolf Loos (1870-1933) was a flamboyant character whose presence in the cultural hotbed of early 1900s Vienna galvanized the country's architectural landscape. An early, impassioned advocate of modernism, he all-out rejected the grand Secessionist aesthetic prevalant in contemporary Viennese architecture, as well as any hallmarks of the European fin de siecle.

In this introduction to Adolf Loo's colourful and inspiring career, we get to explore the writings, achievements, and legacy which continued to resound down the decades, influencing the successive styles and generations in the architectural conversation between elaborate and elemental aesthetics.
