Gottfried Böhm (1920-2021)


Gottfried Böhm has died at the age of 101. A grandson, son, and father of architects, he was given the prestigious Pritzker Prize in 1986.

Böhn was a sculptor among architects. His best-known works are like craggy mountains of concrete, such as Bensberg City Hall and the Maria Königin des Friedens pilgrimage church in Neviges, near Düsseldorf, which looks carved out of a rock and built to last for eternity.

For the centenary of Böhm’s birth, Arquitectura Viva published the article Un arquitecto escultor.
