Carl Gotthard Langhans

Carl Gotthard Langhans (1732–1808) was a German master builder and Royal architect. He is the architect of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, national symbol of todays Germany and its unification in 1989/90. For many years Langhans was the head of the building authority for the Prussian province of Silesia (now Poland). He was later appointed first director of the Royal building commission in Berlin. His churches, palaces, grand houses, interiors, city gates and theatres in Silesia (now Poland), Berlin and elsewhere belong to the earliest examples of Neoclassical architecture in Germany. See some of his finest works here. His son, Carl Ferdinand, also became a well-known architect.
