a+u’s June 2018 issue continues our feature on the life and work of Adolf Loos, with guest editor Yoshio Sakurai. While the May issue considered Loos’ experiments with residences, this issue surveys 36 works with the intention of forging a relationship between the treatment of Loos’ interiors and his thinking on urbanity.

Organizationally, the issue is divided into 4 chapters: Residential Additions and Alteration Plans, Interior Design, Collective Housing, and Mixed-use Facilities.
