Item description for Adolf Loos: Works and Projects by Ralf Bock...
Adolf Loos (1870-1933) was a Viennese architect known for his radical building facades. Author Ralf Bock reveals the sensuality of Loos's interior designs, demonstrating that Loos was not an architect of the "white modern movement," but rather, he fought against it. A careful analysis of Loos's ideology and oeuvre, this book features 30 existing projects in 160 extraordinary full-color images by the celebrated French photographer Philippe Ruault, who has completely rephotographed Loos's works. These new images offer different interpretations of Loos' interiors and bring him back to the center of contemporary architectural debate. The color photographs are supplemented by archival photos from the Loos Archive of the Albertina, Vienna, and a completely new set of project drawings. Ralf Bock is an architect and has worked with Massimiliano Fuksas since 1994 on projects in Austria and Italy. He has been working on the Loos project since 2001. He lives and works in Vienna. Philippe Ruault has photographed the works of architects such as Jean Nouvel, Rem Koolhaas, Richard Rogers, and Massimiliano Fuksas. His photographs are published regularly in architectural magazines including, Domus, architecture d´ aujourd´hui, and Architecture Review.

a perfect monograph Nov 15, 2007
in september 07, i returned to new england from a trip to austria and the czech republic in search of works by josef hoffmann and adolf loos. i was delighted to receive this book on my return. it's one of the best publications on adolf loos. loos in my opinion is much stronger than the "decorative" hoffmann. this book should be on every architect's shelf. plans, great photos and some text worth reading. if you need to compare, the best book on josef hoffmann is eduard f. seklar's monograph.
