Scho­l­ars have long stres­sed the pro­blem of orna­ment and expres­si­on when con­s­i­de­ring Vien­nese moder­nism. By the first deca­de of the 20th cen­tu­ry, howe­ver, the avant-gar­de had shifted its focus from the sur­face to the inte­ri­or. Adolf Loos (1870–1933), toge­ther with Josef Frank (1885–1967) and Oskar Strnad (1879–1935), led this gene­ra­ti­on of archi­tects to inter­pret moder­nism through cul­tu­re and life­style. They were inte­rested in the expe­ri­ence of archi­tec­tu­ral space: how it could be navi­ga­ted, inh­a­bi­ted, and desi­gned to reflect the modern way of life while also offe­ring respi­te from it.

The New Space traces the theo­reti­cal con­ver­sa­ti­on about space car­ri­ed out in the wri­tings and built works of Loos, Frank, and Strnad over four deca­des. The three ulti­mate­ly explo­red what Le Cor­bu­si­er would later—independently—term the archi­tec­tu­ral pro­me­na­de. Lavish­ly illus­tra­ted with new pho­to­gra­phy and archi­tec­tu­ral plans, this important book enhan­ces our under­stan­ding of the deve­lop­ment of moder­nism and of archi­tec­tu­ral theo­ry and prac­tice.
