Secretary of State Mr. Morak called Gunther Dominig "a visionary who anticipated with his architecture today's advances in IT technology … his fiery spirit and ability to find unexpected solutions are unparalleled … [with his work] he writes the history of Austrian and world architecture." Domenig was born in 1934 in Klagenfurt, Austria, where he founded his architectural office in 1973. International fame came to him after the appearance of his projects for sports facilities for the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. His buildings are also world famous, such as the Central Savings Bank in Vienna (1986) and his own house in Steindorf, on which he worked for 18 years. Among his completed projects are the computing center of the Föst-Alpine AG company in Leoben (1980), the hospital in Brook an der Mur (1993), the hydroelectric power station in Unzmarkt (1990). In Germany, he built the Academy building in Münster and the Archives Center in the historic building complex in Nuremberg, where the Nazi Party rallies were held.
