Lang studied in Vienna and from 1870 became the director of works for the company which built the boulevards and ring roads in Budapest. He also designed a number of private and public buildings for the capital, and later taught in Bucharest. Upon his return to Hungary, he entered into a partnership with Antal Steinhardt and spent his final years in Vienna.
