Hoffmann, while at the Viennese Academy, was a student of the great architect Otto Wagner. Having finished his studies he visited Italy for quite some time. The Italian country house, cubic, whitewashed, with windows cut out of walls in a irregular fashions, without a doubt inspired his first architectural works. His intention was to create the complete work of art and because of this reason he was costantly searching for better materials and to strive for an ever more perfect performance. His guidelines: simplicity, honesty and accurancy. His designs clearly evidence his preference for rectilinear, cubic forms with geometrical ornamentation. For almost all of the houses designed, he designed the interior including all of the furnishings and furniture. In the long list of his works one should also note the austrian Pavillion at the Venice Biennale and the pavillon for the International Exposition in Rome, the Garben Caf? in Vienna and a series of burial monuments.ART131
