Abstract

Rudofsky and Loos share a "cultural understanding" of architecture. Loos defined architecture as a practice providing the background for an individual cultural evolution (and not producing art). Rudofsky deepened that view by providing a series of "fundamentals" that enable individual emancipation, found in cross-cultural comparisons (Mediterranean, Japanese cultures etc.). Loos took the American culture as an example to teach the Viennese, Rudofsky used all "architecture without architects" to demonstrate that western "modernity" had developed as an autonomous art that lost its touch with human issues. The paper is part of a project about the history of thinking styles and not the history of building styles, tracing both the roots and the ramifications of Hoffmann's and Loos's ideas.
