The foundation stone of Adolf Loos’ last house, which was designed in 1932 but never came to fruition, will be symbolically laid on Tuesday outside the National Technical Museum in Prague.

Originally commissioned by the influential Czech businessman František Müller for his daughter Eva, the house was conceived as a low-cost accommodation suitable both for working-class families and management.

The all-wooden, cube-shaped structure painted in a bright green colour is based on the landmark principle of Loos’s architecture known as Raumplan, the concept of seamlessly linking spaces of different heights.
