Austrian Emil Hoppe came from an old Viennese family of architects. Like his brother Paul, Emil was an architect, interior and furniture designer. He studied in Wien and was an excellent draftsman, helping design the magazine The Architect, where many of his designs were published. He submitted his works to the 1928 Art Competitions in Amsterdam together with his partner [Otto Schönthal], with whom he shared his office from 1909-38. Their mutual entries comprised realized, as well as unrealized, projects and included, for instance, the trotting course (today Trabrennbahn Krieau formerly at the Rotonde in Vienna, 1911-13), the Letná Stadium in Praha (1921, burned down in 1934), the trotting course in Marianske Lázne (opened in 1922, still in use), and the competition project for the stadium in Vienna (1924). Between the two World Wars, Hoppe often worked as a designer and graphic artist. In addition to postcards for the “Wiener Werkstätte”, he produced various posters and magazine front pages, as well as material and glass designs.
