He was eventually sent to architecture school in Paris and returned to Munich in 1724. He became court architect in 1725 and designed Amalienburg as a hunting pavilion on the grounds of Nymphenburg Palace (Schloss Nymphenburg) in 1734. It was built for the Electress Maria Amalia, wife of the Elector Karl VII of Bavaria.
