Maria Konigin, at Cologne-Marienburg, Germany, 1954.
(b. Jettingen, Germany 1880; d. Cologne, Germany 1955)
Dominkus Böhm was born in Jettingen, Germany in 1880. He studied at the Technische Hochschul in Stuttgart under Theodor Fischer before establishing a private practice in Cologne in 1903. He taught at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Offenbach and served in the army during the First World War.
After the devastation of World War I, Böhm became a leading figure in the revival of twentieth century German Catholic church architecture. Böhm's own spirituality affected the design concepts of all of his work and reflected changes occurring within the Roman Catholic Church immediately after the war.
Böhm pioneered the concept of the single-volume, open-plan church. His works tended toward expressionism but maintained a strong sense of geometry and materials.
Dominkus Böhm was the father of Pritzker Architecture Prize winner Gottfried Böhm, born in 1920.
Dominkus Böhm died in Cologne in 1955.
