Nering, or Nehring, Johann Arnold (1659–95). German architect and military engineer of Dutch descent, he settled in Berlin where he worked on the Schloss (Royal Palace) from 1679, designing Baroque and Palladian interiors, all of which have been destroyed. He built the Chapel at Schloss Köpenick, near Berlin (1684–5), extended Schloss Oranienburg (1689–95), and worked on the laying out of Friedrichstadt, Berlin, from 1688. His grandest surviving building is the Baroque Zeughaus (Arsenal), Berlin (from 1695), evolved from a plan by N. -F. Blondel, and completed by Schlüter and Jean de Bodt. He commenced Schloss Lützenburg, near Berlin (1695), later altered by Eosander von Göthe and renamed Schloss Charlottenburg. In Saxony he seems to have prepared designs for the Schloss at Barby (c.1687).

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:
