Adolf Loos is one of the most important and influential architects of the 20th century. In his architecture he tried to combine tradition and progress and opposed radical developments. His approach, therefore, often seems contradictory and complex - and so Adolf Loos remains misunderstood in many ways to this day and his work, which focuses on the interior, remains hidden.

In the anniversary year 2020, well-known but also hidden Loos buildings and interiors will be made accessible to the public for the first time via guided tours.
