In the series of interpretations of Adolf Loos (1870–1933), the question of the relationship between the written and the built was hardly ever asked. This publication is dedicated to this analysis of the architectural-theoretical programme in the context of the built work, extended by a current image dossier of buildings, spaces, surfaces and details that visually seeks to trace Loos’ understanding of space and interior design.
