Happy 150th Birthday, Adolf Loos!

We are pleased to share this lecture by the architectural scholar Christopher Long, Professor at University of Texas at Austin, on the occasion of Adolf Loos’ 150th birthday anniversary. Based on his new book, Adolf Loos, The Last Houses, Long investigates the Villa Winternitz, which has just been restored and is able to be toured.

“Adolf Loos — The Late Houses: New Approaches to the Raumplan Idea”

This year we published a revised and updated version of Claire Beck Loos’ insightful and lively biography of her husband, The Private Adolf Loos: Portrait of an Eccentric Genius, which covers this period of Loos’ life.

Christopher Long is also the editor of Paul T. Frankl | Autobiography, published by DoppelHouse Press in 2013.
