Arnstein Arneberg (1882-1961) was a Norwegian architect who had his own firm in Oslo from 1906. In 1916 he and Magnus Poulsson entered the first stage of a competition for architectural designs for the new City Hall; their projects were successful throughout all stages of the competition. Arneberg and Poulsson were chosen in 1919 to be the architects for the new City Hall.
In the same year, Arneberg also designed the first brick studio which Munch built at Ekely. P. 385.
