The first major look at the renowned industrial designer and architect, who helped to shape the look of American modernism from the 1920s through the early 1950s

 Adolf Loos on Trial Christopher Long 9788074372261
In early September 1928, the police in Vienna arrested the famed architect Adolf Loos. The charge was child molestation.

 The New Space: Movement and Experience in Viennese Modern Architecture Christopher Long 9780300218282
Scholars have long stressed the problem of ornament and expression when considering Viennese modernism. By the first decade of the 20th century, however, the avant-garde had shifted its focus from the surface to the interior. Adolf Loos (1870-1933), together with Josef Frank (1885-1967) and Oskar Strnad (1879-1935), led this generation of architects to interpret modernism through culture and...

The New Space: Movement and Experience in Viennese Modern Architecture
 The Looshaus Christopher Long 9780300174533

When it was completed in 1911, the Goldman & Salatsch Building in Vienna, commonly known as the Looshaus, incited controversy for its austerity and plainness. It represented a stark rejection of the contemporary preference for ornamentation, though its architect, Adolf Loos (1870-1933), had intended it to preserve Viennese tradition within a new modernist language. The heated debate that...
