Biography

Wolter Bakker initially worked as a supervisor in construction and railroad, later moving into design and architecture. In the 1930s, Bakker worked for Stiching Sportfondsen, which funded the building of many sports facilities in the Netherlands. Bakker in particular served as an architect for many swimming pools, such as in Zwolle (1933), Eindhoven (1935), Zaandam (1938), and Gouda (1939). For the 1936 Olympics, Bakker also submitted five swimming pool designs (for Apeldoorn, Arnhem, Eindhoven, Heerlen and Maastricht). Bakker also designed homes (notably in his home town Baarn) and led the revision of the Hollandsche Schouwburg (a theater) in Amsterdam.
