Austrian architect Erwin Ilz was given an Honorable Mention at the 1936 Olympic Games together with his compatriot Hans Pfann for their work Refinement of the Danube Island near Langenzersdorf. Ilz studied at the Technical High School in Wien (Vienna). His career started with town planning projects mainly in Wien and he later often worked with Pfann. In 1934 Ilz became an internal architect at the Künstlerhaus Wien, where the National Socialists began to restructure the institution in the Nazi mold. Ilz was thus discarded from the list of institutional members in 1945, but oddly, only three years later he was reinstated as a member by common consent. He eventually worked as a town planner in Salzburg, mostly planning buildings in a conservative style.
