Stefanie Weinrauch has been employed as a junior researcher at the Institute for Architecture at the FH JOANNEUM GmbH, University of Applied Sciences since August 2013. She studied Art History at the Karl-Franzens University of Graz (spezialisation in architecture) and wrote her Master Thesis about the Margaretenhof in Vienna (The Margaretenhof in Vienna: its architects, history and influence on residential building). The Margaretenhof was built in 1884/1885 by the architects Ferdinand Fellner the Younger and Hermann Helmer for baroness Amalie Lipthay. The studio Fellner & Helmer brought international fame for the young architects and made them known far beyond the borders of the Danube Monarchy.
