Walter Sobotka was an Austrian architect and designer. He graduated as an architect at the Technische Hochschule Wien in 1912. From 1919 to 1923, he worked for the Viennese firm of architect Karl Korn. After this, he worked on several projects, like the interiors for Peter Behrens’s house at the Weissenhof Siedlung in 1927. In 1937 he designed the Austrian Pavilion for the World Exposition in Paris. In 1938 he had to flee to the United States, where he continued working on the design of interiors and furniture.
