Dr. Egill Reimers was a well-known architect during the first half of the 20th century. He shaped the cityscape of Bergen, constructing museums (The Cultural History Collections Museum) and university buildings (Geophysical Institute) in the style of the so-called Bergen school. Reimers studied and earned his PhD at the München Technical University in 1902. In Bergen, Reimers first worked in the community’s office before he opened his own company. His works covered a range from art-deco to neo-classical functionalism.
