Ernö Goldfinger re an encounter with Adolf Loos

Goldfinger re Loos: 

“one time we were sitting in the Dôme and a young Austrian architect came up: ‘Master, I have achieved a fabulous thing. I am going to work for Le Corbusier.’ Loos says: ‘My dear boy, when you come to Paris you come to learn French, not Esperanto.’ He hated Corbusier’s architecture, just as I hate his ‘Kasbah’ architecture – all the white stuff” [1].
