Revolutionary essays on design, aesthetics and materialism - from one of the great masters of modern architecture

Adolf Loos, the great Viennese pioneer of modern architecture, was a hater of the fake, the fussy and the lavishly decorated, and a lover of stripped down, clean simplicity. He was also a writer of effervescent, caustic wit, as shown in this selection of essays on all aspects of design and aesthetics, from cities to glassware, furniture to footwear, architectural training to why 'the lack of ornament is a sign of intellectual power'.

Translated by Shaun Whiteside
With an epilogue by Joseph Masheck

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. 'But art has nothing to do with forgery, with lies. The paths of art may be thorny, but they are clean.' Ornament and Crime comprises a selection of essays by celebrated Viennese architect, Adolf Loos, and cover the full range of design - from architecture to jewellery, pottery to plumbing, craft training to printing. A great enthusiast and great hater, Loos and his ideas were absolutely fundamental to 20th century aesthetics, as well as being very enjoyable to read. He extols heroes and denigrates villains, as he makes quite clear- 'If you want to have a contemporary craft, if you want to have contemporary utility objects, then poison the architects'. The Penguin on Design series includes the works of creative thinkers whose writings on art, design and the media have changed our vision forever. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780141392974
