Josef Hoffmann (Brtnice, Moravia, 1870 - Vienna 1956) architect, attended the Staatsgewerbeschule of 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 1898 he became one of the founders of the Viennese secession, and later, of the Wiener Werkstätte together with Joseph Maria Olbrich.
The slightly anachronistic aspect of Hoffmann's work left him at the margins of the currents of the new architecture, the critical debate and the crisis from which international rationalism emerged.
In 1912 he founded the Österreichischer Werkbund, which in 1920 became the Austrian section of the Deutscher Werkbund.
