Architects of the Czech Baroque | Martin Pavlíčeks lecture cycle
The Prague architect and builder, the fifth son of Kryštof Dientzenhofer, Kilián Ignác Dientzenhofer (1689-1751) attended the Jesuit Grammar School in Malá Strana, after studying at the University of Philosophy and Mathematics at the University of Prague. He trained his father in construction, and in 1707 he went to Vienna, where he met J. L. Hildebrandt. He began to work independently before 1720. He designed an extraordinary number of churches, chapels, monasteries and palaces that are original variations to the dynamic concepts of late Baroque architecture.
