Ornament is a crime because it’s erotic, needlessly luxuriant, fatuously holy, a dim-witted version of more sublime art. "Ornament and Crime contains thirty-six original essays by the celebrated Viennese architect, Adolf Loos (). Most deal with questions of design in a wide range of areas, from architecture and furniture, to clothes and jewelry, pottery, plumbing, and printing; others are polemics on craft education and training, and on design in general.

Beautifully illustrated throughout, this thought-provoking compendium invites you to discover modernism’s journey from the s to the present day. Dec 03,  · An unprecedented homage to modernist architecture from the s up to the present day. Ornament Is Crime is a celebration and a thought-provoking reappraisal of modernist architecture.
