In praise of craftsmanship


A doctrine of Loos’s: “A useful object may only be formed ‘out of the best materials’ and ‘only with the greatest care’”. To this Neutra remarked: “If I have to say what impressed me most about him then surely it would be his unshaken belief in durability compared to the continual comings and goings of fashion…Loos was full of admiration for craftsmanship”.
