On the one hand, their work is concerned with the autonomy of architectural means. On the other, each architect tries, in his own way, to place his work in a context.

Edited by Max Risselada. Comparisons between Loos and Le Corbusier greatly illuminate the special qualities of each of these two magisterial architects. In the work of both architects there is creative tension between two paradigms: on the one hand, their work is concerned with the autonomy of architectural means, and on the other, each architect tries to locate his work in a context. These contexts frequently overlap. To Loos, the starting departure is traditional craftsmanship, the task being socially determined.
In Le Corbusier's case, the division of labor between design and realization forms the core of architectural process. The assignment and means of realizing it are formulated in terms of new technologies. This revised and updated edition looks anew at the respective merits of two giants of modern architecture. As well as featuring writings by the architects themselves, the book illustrates the evolution of the work of Loos and Le Corbusier, with detailed reference to their domestic projects, ranging from the Strasser House to the Last House , and from Maison Domino to Villa Savoye With excellent overviews and analyses, this book offers insight into the motivations of these two architects, so near yet so far away.

Adolf Loos & Le Corbusier: Raumplan versus Plan Libre
They are, however, very distinct. A free plan comes into play when the role of structure is separated from that of enclosure of spaces. Generally, it arises through the use of columns that allow the partitioning of space to follow a logic other than that of the structural grid. In the best demonstrations of free plan see Le Corbusier the columns play a spatial as well as structural role, defining sub-zones, passage zones, or used sculpturally to create a greater sense of depth in space. An open span is a plan which is left largely unplanned, as in typical office towers or single space homes. In the first free plan there are always rooms, even if they are not entirely closed off, while in the second open plan there is only the perimeter. A raumplan is a planning method based on discreet rooms and a dynamic section.
