Biography

Danish architect Frederik Hvalsøe was educated as a bricklayer in 1903 and attended the Academy of Art in Københaven (Copenhagen) from 1905-16. He established his architectural firm with Arthur Wittmaack in 1916. Both designed a wide range of typical buildings in and around København that still characterize the city today.

Hvalsøe traveled to Germany and Switzerland in 1909, moved to Italy in 1921, and later took a shorter study tour to other European countries. He entered the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam in the architecture category along with Wittmaack, submitting plans for the Swimming pool of Copenhagen.
