Biography

Julius Mayreder (26 June 1860 – 15 January 1911) was an Austrian architect.

Early life

Mayreder was born the son of Leopold (1823–1892), a restauranteur and hotelier, and Henriette Rettmeyer (1834–1923). His siblings were Karl Mayreder (1856–1935), also a prominent Austrian architect; and Rudolf (1865–1937), a lawyer, civil engineer, and contractor. He married Marie Einsle (1873–1958) in 1904 and had a son, Frederick (1905–1954), also an architect.

Education

From 1878–1880, Mayreder studied at the Technical University in Vienna, but left after two years to pursue greater artistic freedom. From 1880–1882, he was a student at a Kunstgewerbeschule (school of arts and crafts). Between 1883–1886, he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (Akademie der bildenden Künste) under Friedrich von Schmidt. In 1887, he traveled in Greece, Constantinople, Italy, Germany, and France on a Prix de Rome scholarship, awarded to promising arts students.

Career

Mayreder began work in the offices of the architects Viktor Luntz in Trieste and Adolf Lang in Budapest in 1888. In 1890, he worked in the architectural studio of Franz von Neumann. Beginning in 1891, he worked as an independent architect.

He collaborated frequently with his brothers Karl and Rudolf. In 1893, they won a competition to manage construction in Stubenviertel, close to Vienna's historic city center. They also won second prize for a project to manage construction in all of Vienna.

Mayreder designed many buildings, both residential and industrial. As an architect, Mayreder favored a Baroque style. He was also a founding member of the Vienna Secession in 1897.

Mayreder died in 1911 of a brain disease. He is buried at Zentralfriedhof, the "central cemetery" of Vienna.
