27 still-existing buildings and interiors by Austrian architect and pioneer of European Modernist architecture Adolf Loos in order of their construction.
Adolf Loos was one of the pioneers of European Modernist architecture. His vehement turn against ornamentation on buildings triggered a controversy in architectural theory. The development of his “spatial plan” launched a new way of thinking about spaces to be built. His houses, furniture for shops and apartments, facades, and monuments were built between 1899 and 1931. LOOS ORNAMENTAL captures the buildings in their present surroundings in Vienna, Lower Austria, Prague, Brno, Pilsen, Nachod, and Paris.
The film is part of the series “Architecture as Autobiographie” and “Photographie and beyond”.
