When completed in 1911, the Goldman & Salatsch building in Vienna created a furore. Above a traditional marble portico, its sheer concrete walls and square, unadorned windows offered a glimpse of the future that - depending on the viewer's perspective - was either terrifying or liberating. Drawing on extensive new research, this handsomely illustrated book sets the story of this key work of Modernism and the life of its architect, Adolf Loos (1870-1933), against the cultural ferment of turn-of-the-century Vienna.
