Illustrated with 32 striking heliogravures, this authoritative photo-illustrated monograph on Adolf Loos' work sheds a valuable light on the renown and influential Moravian-born Austro-Hungarian architect. His essay "Ornament and Crime" advocated smooth and clear surfaces in contrast to the lavish decorations of the Fin de siècle and also to the more modern aesthetic principles of the Vienna Secession. Loos became a pioneer of modern architecture and contributed a body of theory and criticism of Modernism in architecture and design.The 32 photographic plates depict some of his major architectural achievements, such as: Wilhelm Hirsch's appartment, the Steiner House, the Scheu House, Café Capua, the Löwenbach appartment, the Rufer House, the Spanner House, the Tristan Tzara House, the Müller House, etc..Text in French. Wrappers and interior in very good condition.
