Shaped by Adolf Loos


As part of his architectural studies Neutra also attended Adolf Loos’s private school of architecture in Vienna; Neutra was influenced by Loos’s straightforward, unadorned Modernism of which he was a pioneer. His most famous written work is a lecture entitled “Ornament and Crime” (1908). Villa Müller, built in Prague in 1930, is archetypal of Loos’s modernist work.
