MÜLLER, Johann Georg
(b. 1822, Mossnang, d. 1849, Wien)


Swiss architect and writer. He trained under Felix Wilhelm Kubly (1802-1872) in St Gall (1837) and Georg Friedrich Ziebland in Munich (1838-41). In 1842-43 he travelled to Italy, staying mainly in Florence. In 1844-45 he opposed the rebuilding of the Laurenzenkirche at St Gall, which was instead restored (1849-55), basically in accordance with his ideas. Before going to Vienna in 1847, he designed several private houses and some railway stations, including that at Zurich.

Müller worked in Munich when he was invited to Vienna in 1848 to take over the planning of the suburban Altlerchenfeld church. He won the commission for the church and was also appointed to teach at the Hochschule. Unfortunately, he died tragically the next year.
