ADOLF LOOS: Private Houses
One of the most important Austrian architects of the 20th century, Adolf Loos concentrated on designing residential buildings all his life. The exhibition focuses on private homes, though by way of contrast it also presents Loos’s most important social housing projects. Family homes, villas, and country houses, for the most part luxuriously furnished and designed for a middle-class clientele, are juxtaposed with revolutionary social projects such as those Loos designed for the municipality of Vienna. The exhibition also presents design drawings, plans, photographs, and models from the Albertina’s Adolf Loos Archive.
