He studied at ETH Zürich from 1926 until 1930 and after having worked in the architectural practice of Karl Egender, opened his own practice in 1940. Most of his projects can be found in the cantons of Zürich and Grisons. He died in 2012 at the age of 104. The following photo series show some of the buildings he designed.
