Loos´ Box

2004 / Czech Republic / 10min

The so-called raumplan, special space-structuring in the Muller's Villa in Prague, respecting function and symbolical importance of each room in the house, was Adolf Loos's specific understanding of functionalism. Unique solutions do not grow from the development of only one field, they are always a synthesis of changes in approach and the whole social consequences. Therefore, shooting the Villa is a journey across important areas of the scientific and social paradigm of the end of the 1920s. We build the Villa from thoughts: the film mirrors particular changes in mathematics, cinema and in the social role of media. It becomes archaeology of the mind at the end of 1920s.
