It is worth mentioning that Riehl's presentation renderings can be particularly spectacular. He worked as an architectural draftsman for Weiss, Dreyfous and Seifeth before entering into partnership with former Emile Weil, Inc. partner, Herbert A. Benson. The Southeastern Architectural Archive retains Riehl's rendering of a proposed rebuilding of the French Opera House that is especially noteworthy.
