Friedrich Ohmann 1858-1927

Friedrich Ohmann is one of the major European architects, whose main works fall at the time of turn of the XIX to XX century. From the modern point of view Friedrich Ohmann was till his death on 6 April 1927 with his whole life and work, with his ideas (he was among other things the co-founder of Vienna Secession) a European, a “modern” mobile person, who can be an example for us even today.


From the architectural point of view Friedrich Ohmann developed his style from late Historicism to early Modern. His substantial knowlege of the language of stylistic form was the general principle in all the phases of his work. Particular attention of general public he received for the works, which due to their demonstratively floral Art Nouveau could almost be understood as a way to convey “Parisian Flair”.

Friedrich Ohman apart from that was also a child of Monarchy; he dealt purposefully with the possibilities which the size of the country offered him at that time. Numerous successful competitions and buildings, as for instance, Colonnades of Castle fountains in Karlovy Vary, Kurhaus in Meran or archeological Museum in Split testify for this.
