Resumen

El ornamento en arquitectura ha estado siempre envuelto de polémica, en muchos casos influenciada por una lectura banal de la famosa conferencia de 1908 de Adolf Loos titulada “Ornamento y delito”. Una lectura más profunda de sus textos y el análisis de su obra nos lleva a comprender su posición respecto al ornamento e identificar aquellos elementos que el maestro vienés estaba realmente criticando. No se trata tanto de una crítica directa al ornamento, como de la censura al uso inadecuado del ornamento. Los ejemplos del café Museum o su edificio en Michaelerplatz ilustran sus teorías, al igual que maestros coetáneos como Otto Wagner o Frank Lloyd Wright. Debemos despojarnos de nuestros prejuicios sobre el ornamento, para entender la postura de Adolf Loos. Una postura que no ha perdido vigencia en la arquitectura contemporánea.
