Johan Otto Von Spreckelsen
Birth: Apr. 4, 1929
Death: Mar. 16, 1987

Architect. From 1978 he was a professor at the Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and he also worked for UNESCO in Turkey. He was the architect behind several of Denmark's modern church buildings. Von Spreckelsen won an international competition arranged by the French president Mitterand in 1982 concerning the building of a new triumphal arch, "La Grande Arche", in the La Défense district in Paris. The arch, which rises to 110 meters, was the culmination of his relatively short career. It was inaugurated in 1989, two years after his death. (bio by: Erik Skytte)
