Husly, Jacob Otten (1738–96). Dutch architect and teacher, his work was influenced by Palladianism, and then by Neo-Classicism, of which he appears to have been among the earliest practitioners in The Netherlands. He designed the Town Halls at Weesp (1771–6) and Groningen (1793–1810), van Teyler's Museum interiors, Haarlem (1780), and the Felix Meritis Society Building, Amsterdam (1781–8), all in The Netherlands.
