German architect. A pupil of Schinkel, he designed a number of houses in Berlin, and indeed, with Hitzig and Stüler, evolved a refined Italianate style for mid-C19 domestic architecture in the Prussian capital. He also designed country-houses, some in the castellated style of Schinkel's Babelsberg. The Berlin Synagogue (1859–66—in a Moorish-medieval style) was by him, but completed by his son, Gustav (1836–1916), and Stüler (destroyed 1938–45, but reconstructed). He edited the Zeitschrift für Bauwesen (Journal for Building) for many years. Another son, Edmund (1841–83), also became a Berlin architect.
