Josef Hoffmann

Josef Hoffmann (Brtnice, Moravia, 1870 – Vienna 1956) architect, attended the Staatsgewerbeschule in Brno. In 1892 he moved to Vienna to complete his training at the Academy of fine arts, where he was a pupil of Otto Wagner.

In 1989 he became one of the founders of the Vienna Secession and, later, of the Wiener Werkstätte along with Joseph Maria Olbrich. The slightly anachronistic aspect of Hoffman’s work left him on the edges of the new architectural currents, critical debate and the crisis from which international rationalism came.

In 1912 he founded the Österreichischer Werkbund, which in 1920 was transformed into the Austrian section of the Deutscher Werkbund.
