Adolf Loos and Josef Hoffmann were born at almost the same time in 1870 and only a few kilometers apart in Moravia. After
a short resumption of their friendship, lasting rivalry took root at the end of 1898 and continued until the death of Loos
in 1933. Yet they had several traits in common: they were both architects and designers of arts and crafts objectsfor
which they are world-renowned todaywho revered Otto Wagner, were both friends with Josef Frank, and both had an un compromising
artistic outlook.On the occasion of the exhibition Ways to Modernism. Josef Hoffmann Adolf Loos and Their Impact, experts on Josef Hoffmann and Adolf Loos will explain their ways of thinking and working and will discuss the survival of
these two contrary approaches in contemporary works by architects and designers.
