Biography

Danish architect Arthur Wittmaack was active in København in an architectural firm with [William Hvalsøe]. Both designed a wide range of typical buildings in and around København that still characterize the city today. Wittmaack was the son of a hotelier and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wien (Vienna). He entered the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam in the architecture category along with Hvalsøe, submitting plans for the Swimming Pool of Copenhagen. This so-called Østerbro Hallen was built in 1926-30 in neoclassical style to become Denmark's first public indoor swimming pool. It is still in use.
