Professor Christopher Long (University of Texas at Austin) –
Thoughts on the Ground Plan: Spatial Ideas in Loos, Strnad, Frank, and Schindler

During the first decades of the last century, Vienna was a fertile ground not only for discussions about the use and meaning of ornament in architecture, but also an important discourse concerning ideas of space, movement, and procession. This lecture will examine the works and ideas of four seminal thinkers—Adolf Loos, Oskar Strnad, Josef Frank, and R. M. Schindler—and how each contributed to modern conceptions of space-making.

Christopher Long is professor of architectural and design history at the University of Texas at Austin. He is the author of Josef Frank: Life and Work (2002), Paul T. Frankl and Modern American Design (2007), and The Looshaus (forthcoming).
