Biography

Hanns Beyeler was also a football player with the first team of Young Boys Bern (Swiss Champion in 1920) and FC Bern. In 1918 he was Swiss speed skating champion over 3,000 metres. He then served in 1923 as site manager at the new plant of FC Bern, on the sports field at Neufeld. Beyeler also became one of the most famous architects in Switzerland for sports facilities. His father Albin worked as an engineer in railway projects.

Hanns graduated in 1919 from the Technical School of Burgdorf and then moved for two years to Stuttgart at the Technical High School. In 1924 he founded his own office in Bern together with Rudolf von Sinner (1890-1960). After World War II Beyeler dissolved the partnership with von Sinner and exclusively built sports facilities. In addition to stadiums in Thun and Bellinzona and the university sports plant in Bern he constructed 11 outdoor pools in the triangle of Bern-Basel-Zürich. His best known work was the Kunsteisbahn und Wellenbad Dählhölzli (Artificial Ice Speed Track and Wave Pool).
