Biography

Wilhelm Riphahn (also Wilhelm Riphan; born July 25, 1889 in Cologne – December 27, 1963 in Cologne) was a German architect.

Riphahn studied at the technical universities in Berlin-Charlottenburg, Munich, and Karlsruhe. He worked for a Siemens construction office in Berlin and in 1912 for "Gebrüder Taut & Hoffmann". In 1913 Riphahn became an independent architect and worked with Caspar Maria Grod until 1931. Some of his more well-known works include the Bastei restaurant and the Cologne opera house.

Riphahn is buried in Cologne's Melaten cemetery.
