Loos Ornamental

Architecture as autobiography: the film presents twenty-seven buildings by the Austrian architect Adolf Loos (1870 - 1933) in the chronological order in which they were created. What can be seen and experienced is the unfolding of Loos' conception of space, his understanding of material and  the development of his almost modular way of building. Shot in Vienna, Lower Austria, Paris and the Czech Republic, the film shows all the buildings in their present state and is thus also a documentation of the fate of modern architecture.
