Stüler, Friedrich August

Stüler, Friedrich August (1800–65). German architect. Educated at the Bauakademie (School of Architecture) Berlin, he was one of the most gifted of Schinkel's students, and continued designing in a manner reminiscent of the mas-ter's style. He supervised the remodelling of Prince Karl's Palace, Berlin (1827), and his first independent work was the inventive polychrome Stock Exchange (Börse), Frankfurt-am-Main (1839–44—demolished). In 1841 he made a design to transform the island in the River Spree behind Schinkel's Lustgarten (now Altes (Old) ) Museum as a Cultural Centre with Museums, and the Neuesmuseum (New Museum) was completed to his designs (1843–50) in a Neo-Classical style harmonizing with Schinkel's great building. With Strack he designed the Nationalgalerie near by (1865–76), a Graeco-Roman temple on a high podium. He designed, with Albert Dietrich Schadow (1797–1869—Hofbaumeister (Court Architect) in Potsdam), the Russian-style Church of Sts Peter and Paul, Nikolskoë, Pfaueninsel (Peacock Island), Berlin (1833–7), several Rundbogenstil Berlin churches (these, and his writings on ecclesiastical architecture, were influential), the Quattrocento Revival National Museum, Stockholm, Sweden (1850–66), the Officers' Barracks, Charlottenburg, Berlin (1851–9—opposite the Charlottenburg Palace—now the Egyptian Museum), and many other buildings. He was responsible for the interiors of the lavish Renaissance Revival Schloss at Schwerin, erected to plans by Demmler (1851–7), and for several charming villas in and around Berlin and Potsdam from 1845.

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:
