in the Az W courtyard: daily 00:00-24:00
Adolf Loos is one of the most famous Austrian architects. His striking buildings still characterise the Viennese cityscape today, his architectural language has had a global influence. In 2020 his birthday will be 150 years old – reason enough for Az W to dedicate a showcase and an exhibition to this pioneer of modernism within the a_schau. ‘Adolf Loos — Forever young’ examines Loos’ charisma for the following generations up to the present day. Based on an original find, we will open the birthday party with a showcase to the courtyard. In the in-depth exhibition, we want to trace the architects and buildings from our collection who were clearly inspired by Adolf Loos.
