Ungewitter, Georg Gottlob

Ungewitter, Georg Gottlob (1820–64). German architect, a pioneer of the Gothic Revival in his homeland. In 1842 he established a practice in Hamburg, where his domestic architecture was influenced by Chateauneuf, but in 1845 he became convinced that Gothic could be applied to all building-types, and his attitudes to structure and use of materials drew on arguments advocated by A. W. N. Pugin and Viollet-le-Duc. He was also interested in German timber-framed construction. His publications, including Entwürfe zu Stadt-und Landhäusern (Projects for Town and Country Houses—1858–64), Lehrbuch der gotischen Konstruction (Textbook of Gothic Construction—1859–64), Sammlung mittelalterlicher Ornamentik in geschichtlicher und systematischer Anordnung (Collection of Medieval Ornamentation in Historical and Systematic Arrangement—1866), and works on medieval town-and country-houses (1889–90) were influential. His Gotisches Musterbuch (Gothic Pattern Book—1856—with Vincenz Statz (1818–98)) appeared in an English edition in 1858 and a French edition was published 1855–6. He designed churches at Neustadt, Marburg (1859–64), Bockenheim, Frankfurt-am-Main (1862), and elsewhere in Germany, and his studies of German timber-framed buildings were published posthumously as folios in Berlin (1889–90).

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:

  • 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.
