* 02 Aug 1928, † 19 März 2018, Swiss, Architect
After tense negotiations with his secretary, I finally got a meeting with Theo Hotz in his offices in Zurich. He is a passionate person and the encounter is wonderful. I photograph his hands on the sketches of a just won construction project in Vienna.
The Hotz was born in 1928. After an apprenticeship as a building engineer, he opened his own office at the age of 21. One of his notable building is the main train station in Vienna.
Theo Hotz is active in a variety of ways at the cultural and architectural level. An avid art lover, he is, together with his wife Elsa, an important art collector.
