The exhibition Adolf Loos, World Citizen is intended to recall the personality, the work and the basic creative ideas of this major architect, whose legacy is still vital and inspiring. Though Loos never regarded himself as an architect, his opinions and primarily his oeuvre influenced generations of his contemporaries and successors in architecture.
The exhibition in National Technical Museum presents the key achievements of Loos with a focus on his realisations in the Czech lands, which are placed into the context of his buildings and theoretical work as a whole. This context is embodied in the spatial diagram of Loos’s life, thanks to which the visitors can easily tell when and where the individual projects emerged. Loos’s work and its principles will be presented in the exhibition via three-dimensional models, photographs and audiovisual elements. Among the main goals of the exhibition is to contribute to a renewed appreciation of the quality of Loos’s works among the professional and the wider publics.
