villa mueller- adolf loos’ clean lines

2 Mar

i am dreaming myself reclined on the blue armchair while clutching a g&t: there is some faint, non-obtrusive music in the background, and the mind feels clean amid the rich textures but clean lines of adolf loos’ recently-restored villa mueller in prague.

born in 1879, loos made a case for his then-pioneering pared-back architectural aesthetic in a paper entitled ‘ornament and crime’, and is now considered by many to be the intellectual genitor of le corbusier.

you can see more photos at london’s RIBA, where an exhibition and talks are taking place until may 3.
