Biography

Karel Kopp was a Czech architect and designer, focusing on interior design and decoration, who worked together with Ferdinand Balcárek on a number of projects. Initially, the stadium in Strahov was a wooden construction, but Alois Dryák won a competition to modernize the stadium with a classic design. Kopp and Balcárek were awarded second place for the plans they submitted to the 1932 Olympic Art Competition. After Dryák´s death in 1932, the planning work was finally entrusted to Kopp and Balcárek, and the upgrade was completed between 1932-38, with the wooden structure converted to reinforced concrete and brick.
