Born: 1898 - Died: 1988
C.F. Møller, Christian Frederik Møller, is probably the Danish architect who has designed the most houses. He graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, in Copenhagen, in 1925, where he worked at his professor’s, Kay Fisker, design studio. The year before his graduation, he managed to start his own studio; C.F. Møllers Tegnestue, was parallel with his work for Kay Fisker. The collaboration continued until 1943.
In 1931 C.F. Møller won the competition for the new University of Århus together with Kay Fisker and Povl Stegmann. In the years that followed, he and his design studio became a central figure in the newer architecture of Jutland, especially Århus. In 1965 he was chosen to be the first president of the newly founded school of architecture in Aarhus.
C.F. Møller’s son Mads Møller (1942-2013) became partner at the design studio in 1969, and today, the company is one of Scandinavia’s oldest and largest architectural firms.
C.F. Møller often visited the office until his death in 1988. He was 90 years old.
