About Joseph-Antoine Froelicher

  • Josef Anton or Joseph-Antoine Froelicher or Frölicher (November 2, 1790 - 9 January 1866, Paris) was a Swiss architect. Coming from an old middle-class family from Solothurn, Froelicher begins his architectural studies in Switzerland, receiving his degree in Solothurn in 1809.
  • He then left for Paris, endowed with a pension from the Swiss government to complete his studies in Paris.
