GSAPP Exhibitions presents Adolf Loos: Our Contemporary

Adolf Loos: Our Contemporary celebrates the centenary of the Looshaus in Vienna and the publication of Adolf Loos’ most provocative theoretical text: Ornament and Crime. Its primary aim is to map some significant reactions to Loos both among his closest followers, like Paul Engelmann, and more distant admirers such as Ernesto Rogers and Aldo Rossi. The exhibition centers around a series of interviews with major contemporary figures on the international scene including Hans Hollein, Hermann Czech, Alvaro Siza, Eduardo Souto de Moura, Jacques Herzog, Paulo Mendes da Rocha, Toyo Ito, David Adjaye, Steven Holl, and Preston Scott Cohen. From the moment of its appearance Loos’ cultural criticism never failed to elicit controversy and outrage. Couched in the language of his day, it reads as a polemic from another era that nonetheless continues to hold its own. One of chief objectives of the exhibition is to capture the uncanny sense of contemporaneity that Loos exerts, often in the most unobtrusive ways.

GSAPP is pleased to announce the relaunch of the Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery. Its expansion and renovation were made possible with generous support from the Arthur Ross Foundation.
