Architect between Historism and tentative Early Modernism. Assigning him to the epoch of Baroque revival would definitely be one sided. Schulz specialized in church buildings, however, the former department store Tietz, Ludwigstraße 24 in Nuremberg has to be considered as his main work. His first work in Nuremberg is the catholic St. Michael´s Church in the Johannis quarter – a building in Bavarian Baroque Revival style, whereas the church of Estenfeld whose building was started four years later, shows all features of Gothic Revival. The

St. Ludwig-Church in the Nuremberg quarter Gibitzenhof is a building in modernized Romanesque Revival style. Schulz took part in the repair of St. Sebaldus Church and St. Lorenz Church, being even church architect in charge for 15 years, until he died, at St. Lorenz Church.
