Wilhelm (Willy) Legler

Having attended the Kunstgewerbeschule in Vienna, Willy Legler (1902–1960) studied under Peter Behrens and Clemens Holzmeister at the Akademie der bildenden Künste from 1925 to 1929. At the Vienna Werkbund Estate, he designed the interior of house no. 11 by Josef Hoffmann. In 1951, he became a member of the Künstlerhaus in Vienna. His last work is thought to have been the research reactor in the Prater, a collaborative project with the architect Fritz Purr that was not completed until after Legler’s death.
