Interior architecture as autobiography, with 27 works by the Austrian architect Adolf Loos (1870–1933) presented without comment in the order of their construction. Heinz Emigholz documents Loos' theories of space with images that barely move. Diverse fragments, filmed in Vienna, Lower Austria, France and the Czech Republic, create a delicate picture of an architectural career, an architectural life.
