Speckle

Speckle or Specklin, Daniel (1536–89). Alsatian architect, engineer, and cartographer. He designed fortifications in numerous places, and wrote an important treatise, Architectura von Vestungen (Architecture of Fortresses) (1584), which contains a design for an ideal town, the plan of which is like a wheel, with houses laid out along the ‘spokes’: his ideas about town plans and town fortifications remained influential until well into C18. He also wrote Collectanea (1587), an architectural history of Strasbourg, with autobiographical information.
