This splendidly and lavishly photo-illustrated monograph is an exhaustive survey of Austrian architect Friedrich Ohmann's projects and executed buildings, such as:
- The Café Corso (1897-98), in Prague (then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire).
- The Hotel Central (1897-1902), in Prague. Built in collaboration with Bedrich Bendlmayer and Alois Drayak.
- The somptuous interior decoration of the Theater-Variété (now Karlin Musical Theater), in Prague (1898).
- Kostel Nanebevzeti Panny Marie, the Baroque Catholic church of Zlonice (1894-1896).
- The Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe (Museum of Art and Crafts), in Magdeburg (1902).
Most of the buildings featured in this work were built in neo-Baroque and neo-Classical style, with a few in Jugendstill (Art Nouveau).
