Ridinger, or Riedinger, Georg (1568–c.1628). German Renaissance architect. His greatest work was Schloss Johannisburg, Aschaffenburg (1605–14—for Johann Schweikart von Kronberg, Archbishop/Elector of Mainz (reigned 1604–26) ), built round a central courtyard with four massive towers at the corners, an arrangement possibly prompted by Du Cerceau's publications. The gables were decorated with Mannerist devices reminiscent of aspects of Dietterlin's works. This showpiece of Renaissance architecture was influential throughout Germany for the next century.
