Friedrich Euler

Friedrich Euler (1898–1983) studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Vienna from 1919 to 1922, where he was taught by Josef Hoffmann, Oskar Strnad, and Josef Frank. He then worked as an independent architect from 1922, and is known to have designed a villa in the thirteenth district in 1928–29. He also published a book about ‘weekend houses’ in 1931. At the Werkbund Estate, he furnished house no. 59 by Otto Breuer. After the war, he went into partnership with Herbert Thurner. Apart from business premises, Euler constructed a number of housing complexes for the municipal authorities in Vienna; he was also responsible, together with Thurner, for renovating the Blutgasse area in the first district. His services were officially recognised by the city in an award of 1964. Later he became president of the architects’ association, the Zentralverein der Architekten.
