Schwarz, Rudolf

(1897 - 1961)

Rudolf Schwarz was a German architect. He studied architecture in Berlin and also took theology classes. In the early years of his career Schwarz held several teaching positions in Germany and worked in a joint workshop with renowned architect Dominikus Böhm (1880-1955), who had a strong influence on his work. Schwarz is particularly known for his many Catholic churches and his work as the ‘Generalplaner’ of Cologne (1946-52), responsible for the post-war reconstruction of the city.
