Aims and Scope
This delightful book is the first comprehensive guide to all extant buildings of the great German architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel. With detailed descriptions and color illustrations, it takes the reader from Aachen through Potsdam and Berlin to St. Petersburg. On the occasion of his 225th birthday on March 13, 2006, the compact guide on the work of this universally talented architect was published in German. Now it is available in English, detailing almost 150 remaining buildings, ranging from churches and palaces to museums, technical buildings and monuments. Schinkel's buildings are spread from the Rhineland to Russia, with a particular focus on Berlin and Potsdam, where Schinkel created his most famous buildings, such as the Altes Museum, the buildings on Peacock Island or the Nikolaikirche in Potsdam.
