Cursó estudios en la Escuela Profesional de Reichenberg y en la Politécnica de Dresden. En la ciudad de Chicago trabajó como albañil, entarimador y delineante. Posteriormente realizó obras en diversos países de Europa, tales como Austria, Francia y en Viena comienza a ejercer como arquitecto municipal, trabajando en el Ministerio de Vivienda. Vida[editar] Nació en 1870 en Brno, Moravia. En 1899 revolucionó la arquitectura vienesa con la construcción del Café Museum. Como el ornamento ya no está unido orgánicamente a nuestra cultura, tampoco es ya la expresión de ésta. Al finalizar la I Guerra Mundial, el primer presidente de Checoslovaquia, Tomáš Masaryk, le concedió la nacionalidad checa. En 1918 se le diagnosticó cáncer. A los cincuenta años protagonizó un escándalo de pedofilia, y a los 62 estaba en la ruina.[2] Periodo arquitectónico[editar] Su arquitectura[editar] Obras más destacadas[editar] Antes de 1900[editar]
