Adolf Loos and Vienna
The exhibition is devoted to Vienna’s most important international architect for the early modern period, Adolf Loos, dealing with his role as a pioneer of the avant-garde in Vienna, the issue of his relationship with his chosen city, Vienna, and his design for Goldman & Salatsch, his main work in the heart of the city known today as the “Loos-Haus”.
