Demmler, Georg Adolph

Demmler, Georg Adolph (1804–86). German architect. A pupil of Schinkel, he was Court Architect to the Grand Dukes of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, for whom he transformed the Schloss at Schwerin into a Picturesque pile of the Northern Renaissance Revival (1844–57), although Stüler and Strack were responsible for the interiors and completing the building, and the overall scheme owed something to an earlier project by Semper of 1842. Like his master, Schinkel, Demmler cunningly mixed medieval and Classical elements in some of his designs, notably the Rathaus (Town Hall—1835) and the Zeughaus (Arsenal—1840–4), both in Schwerin.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
