Accomplished German practitioner of the Rundbogenstil, and author of the theoretical book In welchem Stil sollen wir bauen? (In What Style Shall We Build?) of 1828, which created a climate of opinion antagonistic to the Neo-Classicism dominant in Baden and Prussia. Prompted by rational French arguments, notably those of Durand, Hübsch argued that style should be derived from carefully considered structural methods and a realistic approach to cost. His plumping for Byzantine Romanesque round-arched forms was based less on style than on the qualities of brick as a building material. His best work of architecture is arguably the elegant Trinkhalle (Spa Pump Room), Baden-Baden (1837–40), with its segmental arcades. He succeeded Weinbrenner (under whom he had studied) as Baurat (Building Inspector) at Karlsruhe, Baden, in 1827.
