Biography

Jens Houmøller Klemmensen was an architect and designer, who was initially trained as a carpenter and subsequently attended the technical college in Odense and the Academy of Art in København (Copenhagen). During this time he also made several trips to various countries in Europe. In 1932 he started his own business in København, making a name for himself with single-family houses, but he also planned numerous multi-story town houses in Denmark and northern Germany. After the war he used new technologies, including precast concrete elements, with designs characterized by simple and plain solutions. Klemmensen also designed furniture. His Olympic award winning artwork Design for a Stadium and Public Park consisted of ink drawings on large wood panels. It displayed an Olympic Stadium located near a bay, which is surrounded by many other sports facilities and a huge area for parking.
