Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky Karin Zogmayer (Edited by) - WHY I BECAME AN ARCHITECT
Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky (1897–2000) was one of the first women to study architecture in Austria and is still considered one of the most widely known and influential architects of her generation.
Her Frankfurt kitchen design brought her world-wide fame, while her imperturbable lust for life was exemplified by the brisk waltz she enjoyed with Vienna's mayor on her 100th birthday. In these autobiographical recollections she offers up highly personal portraits of famous contemporaries such as Otto Neurath, Josef Frank and Adolf Loos, explains why the Frankfurt kitchen was truly revolutionary and tells us that she wanted to become an architect in order to improve ordinary people's quality of life
