Hans Volger


Hans Volger (German, 1904-1973) was a student at the newly opened department of architecture at the Bauhaus in Dessau. In 1928 he won the internal Bauhaus architecture competition advertised by Walter Gropius and was able to realize his architectural design for Haus Dr. Nolden in Mayen/Eifel. In 1932 Volger married fellow Bauhaus-student Lis Beyer and followed her to Würzburg, where she became the head of the weaving workshop at the School for Arts and Crafts. Volger worked as a freelance architect in Würzburg, and simultaneously studied engineering in Karlsruhe, obtaining his diploma in 1936. Afterwards Volger moved to Krefeld, where he became municipal architect.
