(c. 1550–1631).

German architect. His most celebrated work is the Friedrichsbau, Heidelberg Castle (1601–7), an early and vigorous essay in Renaissance architecture, designed for the Elector Frederick IV Palatine of the Rhine (reigned 1583–1610). He probably worked on the Neuer Bau (New Building—1582–5) and Grosse Metzig (Great Shambles—1586–8), Strasbourg. His work may have influenced other early Renaissance buildings in Germany, notably the Zeughaus (Arsenal), Amberg (1604), and the Fleischhalle (Meat Market), Heilbronn (c.1600), both of which have been attributed to him.
