Leopold Bauer, a native of Czechoslovakia, studied at the State Vocational School in Brno and under Otto Wagner architecture in Vienna. He was a representative of the radical modernist architectural school. Over the years, he departed from modernism. His first assignments were country houses in Moravia and castles restorations. From 1911-19 he designed his best known work, the neoclassical Austrian National Bank in Vienna, and from 1913-1919 he was head of the Special School of Architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts. Pressure from leftist politicians forced him to give up this position. He also published frequently about architectural issues.
