Analysis: Haus Müller, 2005
Loos


Adolf Loos' raumplan and Le Corbusier's plan libre forms double axes of 20th century spatial typology. In this analysis, raumplan in Haus Müller is seen through the framework of 4-square and 9-square grid, using the grid as the fundamental structure through which one could read Loos' spatial language. A series of drawings and models are developed to construct a conceptual reading of the house. Each analysis responds to programmatic and formal conditions of the house and establishes a connection between the grid and plan of the house as each other's referent. Persistent local deviation of the plan from regular 4-square and 9-square grid structure at multiple scales constructs an internal rupture within the rigid boundary presented by the exterior building envelope. This project attempts to expose this underlying schism between the interior and the exterior construct of the house.
