Film Screening | Heinz Emigholz: "Loos Ornamental"

  • Goethe Institut Washington DC 812 7th St NW Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)

Loos Ornamental documents twenty-seven structures (and their interiors) designed by architect Adolf Loos (1870 – 1933). A leading pioneer of European modernism whose theoretical writings have had a lasting influence, Loos was known for the austerity of his designs and his divisive shift away from exterior ornamentation.
The film will be shown in German with English subtitles.

Following the screening, Heinz Emigholz will discuss his distinctive ideas on filming architecture.

This event is part of the film series Heinz Emigholz: Architectural Record, which is organized by the National Gallery of Art.
