Ornament is a Crime?

This project began as a thesis I had written for college in second year. The subject of the text was the place of ornamentation and decoration in the modern era of design and architecture, and the way ornament and its perception evolved in the past century.Following that essay, I designed an exhibition on the subject and this catalogue has been made to illustrate the subject, add further explanations, as well as add interviews and other references. The title of the exhibition «Ornament is a Crime?» is referring to the famous essay «Ornament and Crime» written by Adolf Loos early in the 20th century.
