Other works


In addition to the American Bar and Looshaus, Loos's abilities to design with materials and shape spaces can be found across Europe. Much of his earlier work can be seen in Vienna, but during the inner-war period he briefly worked in Paris and thereafter continued to develop mostly residential properties in Austria and Czechoslovakia until his death in 1933. Though most popularly known for his projects for wealthy clients, after World War I he worked on schemes to provide homes for workers and their families. His unbuilt proposals for the Tribune Tower and house for Josephine Baker are still as striking and contentious today as they were in Loos's time.
