He is remembered as an architectural theorist and for his imaginative and grand Baroque designs, published in his Fürstlicher Baumeister (Princely Architect—1711–16), which had a considerable influence on the building of German aristocratic residences in C18, and on certain architects, notably Fischer von Erlach. A second edition was published in 1885. His book of ornament, Architectura Theoretica-Practica, came out in 1720.
