More From Adolf Loos
- "The house has to please everyone, contrary to the work of art which does not. The work is a private matter for the artist. The house is not."
- "Does it follow that the house has nothing in common with art and is architecture not to be included in the arts? Only a very small part of architecture belongs to art: the tomb and the monument. Everything else that fulfils a function is to be excluded from the domain of art."
- "The work of art shows people new directions and thinks of the future. The house thinks of the present."

- "My dad, we’ll be talking about goals for the next year. He’s like, ‘I think you can be here,’ and I look at him like he’s cross-eyed, like, ‘Are you serious? That’s so far out of my reach.’ Well, then I always end up achieving it."― Miranda Leek
