Gottfried Bohm

(b. Offenbach-am-Main 1920)

Gottfried Böhm was born in Offenbach-am-Main in 1920. The son of Dominkus Böhm, he graduated from the Munich Technisch Hochschule in 1946 after which he studied sculpture at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts. He worked in his father's office until 1955, when his father died and he took over the firm.

During his career Böhm designed a large number of buildings including churches, museums, theaters, cultural centers, civic centers, offices and housing. In his designs, Böhm blended old and new styles to create successful internal spaces. He integrated building parts and spaces with both his overall design concept and with his choice of materials.

Böhm won the Grande Medaille d'Or de l'Academie d'Architecture, the Fritz Schumacher Prize for Architecture in Hamburg and the Pritzker Architecture Prize.
