Otto Bubenzer (born August 14, 1878 in Rebbelroth ; † April 24, 1973 ) was a German architect and civil engineer who lived and worked in the Oberbergisches Land .
Bubenzer's monumental architecture is reminiscent of Art Nouveau , but is primarily attributable to homeland security architecture . His most famous works include:
- the villa of the margarine manufacturer Carl Bubenzer in Freudenberg (Siegerland) , built in 1902,
- the observation tower in Derschlag , built in 1904,
- the Bismarck Tower in Wiehl on Engelhardt, built in 1909.
Bubenzer belonged to the "closed" brother movement (from 1930 as a travel preacher). After the ban on meetings in 1937 , he joined as opposed to most other leading representatives not the "Bund Free Church Christians" (BfC) at, but gathered here and there with like-minded people in the underground, for which he twice before the Gestapo -Sondergericht in Cologne answer had to. After the war he was instrumental in the reconstitution of the "closed brothers" and was one of their leading representatives until his death.
Bubenzer was born with Selma. Dannenberg (1884–1961) married and had four children with her.
