Inhalt

Loos Ornamental - Photography And Beyond - Part 13

Architecture as autobiography: The film presents 28 buildings and rooms designed by the Austrian architect Adolf Loos (1870–1933), arranged chronologically according to the time they were built. The images reveal the evolution of Loos′ concept of space, understanding of material as well as the development of an almost modular method of construction. The film was shot in Vienna, Lower Austria, Paris and the Czech Republic. It shows all of the buildings in their current state and is thus also a document about the fate of architectonic modernity.

The film is part of the series called "Photography And Beyond", a film series about writing, drawing, sculpture and architecture. The films show active achievements in design and projection – ideas that have been realized – that have taken the visible form of writing, drawing, photography, architecture and sculpture. It analyses a reversed procedure of seeing, as it were – seeing as expression, not impression. The eye as the interface between the brain and the outer world, the view as a composing force that turns the inside out and presents it mirrored in reality. Something indescribable is formed out of documented and animated notebooks and sketchbooks, through cinematographic analyses of architecture and sculptures: a film about the objectification of concepts of the mind.
