1894 Accepted into Otto Wagner's teaching studio, but withdrew because lack of formal education made study difficult.
1895 Re-admitted to Wagner's Studio and also worked in Wagner's office part-time.
1899 Works in Wagner's office after return from Italian study visit.
1900 Until 1911 sets up own office in Vienna.
