Karl Friedrich Schinkel
architect; b. March 13, 1781; d. October 9, 1841.
In 1797 he entered the Academy in Berlin and studied under David and Friedrich Gilly. In 1820 he was appointed professor in the Academy at Berlin and in 1839 Oberlandbaudirector. He visited Italy, including Istria and Sicily, France and England. In 1834 he made a design for a royal palace on the Acropolis at Athens which, fortunately, was never executed. Among the most important of his buildings are the museum in Berlin (1824-1828), the Royal Theatre in Berlin (1819-1821), the fine Nicolai Kirche at. Potsdam, the Königs-Wache in Berlin (1818), the Schloss-Wache in Dresden, the fine architectural school in Berlin, the Charlottenhof and Casino at Potsdam, etc. Schinkel was much interested in the construction of Protestant churches in the Gothic style, the most important of these being the Werder Kirche in Berlin. He made a design for the completion of the cathedral of Cologne, which was never executed.
