Ornament and Crime. An essay and lecture by modernist architect Adolf Loos first published in 1913.

Ornament and Crime. Revolutionary essays on design, aesthetics and materialism - from one of the great masters of modern architecture 

Adolf Loos, the great Viennese pioneer of modern architecture, was a hater of the fake, the fussy and the lavishly decorated, and a lover of stripped down, clean simplicity. He was also a writer of effervescent, caustic wit, as shown in this selection of essays on all aspects of design and aesthetics, from cities to glassware, furniture to footwear, architectural training to why 'the lack of ornament is a sign of intellectual power'. 

Adolf Loos: '"The evolution of culture marches with the elimination of ornament from useful objects'.

With an epilogue by Joseph Masheck
