Ludwig Brothers, Catalogue of Works (Jan. 2023)

The starting point for the information below is a "List of works 1906–1917" of the buildings of the Ludwig Brothers in the Architecture Museum of the Technical University of Munich (AM TUM), compiled by architect Johannes Ludwig (dated, Dec. 6, 1992). Further information can be found in the "Architektenlexikon Wien 1770–1945" of the Architekturzentrum Wien (Az W). Details about the listed buildings in South Tyrol, see the database "Monumentbrowser" of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano-South Tyrol.

In addition to the "List of works 1906–1917", the AM TUM only keeps historical photos of buildings and projects of the Ludwig Brothers. The collections with original plans known today include the archives of the Municipality of Modřice and the City of Bolzano, the Parkhotel Holzner in Renon and the Parkhotel Laurin in Bolzano. A large volume of unexamined plans and documents are in private hands in the Villa Salgart. They were rediscovered by Bettina Schlorhaufer in 2022. As part of scientific investigations, this collection would be donated to the cooperation partner of the present research project, the Touriseum – Südtiroler Landesmuseum für Tourismus in Merano.

Among the originals in the Villa Salgart there are also written documents, which is rarely the case in similar holdings. This material will provide insights into the work of an architectural office operating between South Tyrol, Moravia, Munich and Vienna respectively its networks.
