German architect. A pupil of Schinkel, he also spent some time in Paris where he absorbed influences from the works of Percier and Fontaine. With Knoblauch and others he helped to consolidate the style of Berlin's domestic architecture in a series of exquisite villas built in the 1840s and 1850s. He also used brick to considerable effect, taking his cue from Schinkel's Bauakademie (1831). Most of his buildings have been destroyed, including the Kronenberg Palace, Warsaw (1866–70—on which he published a monograph in 1875), and the Börse, Berlin (1859–64—also the subject of a monograph, in 1867).
