Summary

Himself a regular cross country skier, Hermann Kutschera submitted a design for a ski jumping stadium to the Olympic art contests. It earned a gold medal, but was never built, the plans being lost during World War II. He was later one of the architects of the Wiener Stadthalle indoor arena and Wien-Schwechat airport. The German March brothers won a silver medal with the same entry that had earned them a gold medal in the town planning event. Third place went to an Austria duo, Hermann Stiegholzer and Herbert Kastinger, designing a course for horse, cycle and motor racing. Kastinger died of a cerebral hemorrhage a year after the Olympics.

Two of the entries in the event were by 1928 winner, Jan Wils. Since he was also a member of the jury, they were entered hors concours, or out of competition.
