Born in Olmütz (then Austria-Hungary) to a middle-class Jewish family, Paul Engelmann is noteworthy both as a student of Adolf Loos and as a close friend and architectural and design collaborator of Ludwig Wittgenstein in Vienna. Engelmann studied at Loos’ architectural school, and was also influenced in his thought by the controversial Viennese satirist Karl Kraus, to whom he served as a personal secretary.
