Arnstein Rynning Arneberg (1882 – 1961) was a Norwegian architect, often considered the leading architect in Norway of his time, active as an architect for 50 years.

Arneberg was educated as an apprentice of Alfred Christian Dahl in Christiania from 1888 to 1900, and studied at the Royal Drafting School with Herman Schirmer. He also studied with Swedish architects Gustaf Lindgren, Isak Gustaf Clason, and Erik Lallerstedt. In turn, Norwegian architect and co-founder of UNICEF, Odd Nansen, worked for Arneberg before World War II.

He and Norwegian architect Ole Sverre worked as partners on Arneberg's earliest works, including a proposal for the royal villa in Voksenkollen in Oslo.

As an independent architect, Arneberg's work included a large array of residences, office buildings, churches, railroad stations, and interiors. He is most famous for his work on the Oslo City Hall (with Magnus Poulsson) and the UN Security Council interior design, as well as Skaugum, the official residence of the crown prince and crown princess of Norway.
