Karl Friedrich Schinkel (March 13, 1781 - October 9, 1841) was a German architect and painter.
Schinkel was the most prominent architect of neoclassicism in Prussia.

Karl Friedrich Schinkel was born on March 13, 1781, in Neuruppin west of Berlin; the family moved to the Prussian capital in 1794.
The museum was Schinkel's masterpiece, one of the principal monuments of European neoclassicism and a continuing source of inspiration for classically oriented architects of the 20th century, such as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson.
Schinkel was appointed professor of architecture at the academy in 1820, and through his students his influence continued long after his death.

 Karl Friedrich Schinkel, "The Last Great Architect"
When Schinkel arrived in 1794 Berlin was still a small and relatively unimportant city with a population of 156,000 (compared with 332,000 at the time of his death and 1,900,000 by the end of the century).
Schinkel's aesthetic was not a crudely materialistic "truth to material" affair, however, but rather an attempt to inform iron and other industrial materials with an appropriate beauty through the direct collaboration of the artist in the manufacturing process.
Schinkel did not attempt in these reliefs a scholarly narrative account of the development of architecture, an obvious impossibility, but chose rather to suggest symbolically certain leaps of the imagination on the part of the creative artist which contributed to the enrichment and ennobling of man's built environment.

Dominating the square is the Schauspielhaus (Theater) built by Karl Friedrich Schinkel (1781-1841), a majestic, bright, classical-style structure.
By dramatizing the setting, Schinkel was also dramatizing the bourgeoisie, since the theater and its square were unquestionably conceived for the middle classes.
The performance in Schinkel's Schauspielhaus was recorded by Unitel and is one of the last recordings with the great maestro (also see the Unitel website article for December 15, 1996).

Sein komplexes Architekturverständnis, das formale, funktionale, soziale sowie historische Faktoren zu verbinden wußte und über mittelalterliche und griechische Elemente immer wieder Funktion und Schönheit verknüpfte, ließen ihn zu einem Vorbild für ganze Architektengenerationen werden – desgleichen wichtige Impulse, die Schinkel dem Theaterbau und der Denkmalpflege vermittelte.
Die vielfältigen Spuren seines Schaffens finden sich in Aachen oder Königsberg, in Dresden oder St. Petersburg, vor allem aber in Berlin, wo er jahrzehntelang als Architekt und Stadtplaner, als Landschaftsmaler und Zeichner wirkte.
Über die Stadtarchitektur hinaus beein- flußte Schinkel auch die Innenarchitektur und wirkte als Schaubild-Aussteller, Denkmalpfleger sowie Schöpfer von Bühnenbildern und kunsthandwerklichen Gegenständen.

 Association for the Promotion of Karl Friedrich Schinkel’s Academy of Architecture
The Bauakademie was designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel and built on the site of the western bank of the Spree River in the years 1832 — 36.
The Bauakademie was the last of the group of buildings that belonged to Schinkel's concept of the urban development of the Spree Island, the so-called Kupfergraben landscape, a landscape garden interspersed with cubical elements.
In its technology and its aesthetic aspect, the Bauakademie is held to be the germ of the multi-storeyed factories of the 19th century in Germany.

"The facade unity achieved in the Schinkel museum derives from the expression of the vertical elements as a freestanding colonnade set into a tight frame provided by end walls, base, and roof.
Termination of the facade by walls instead of columns and the use of the classical device of narrowing the end spacing allow the colonnade to be perceived as an entity, like seeing the forest before the trees.

The son of an archdeacon, Schinkel studied architecture with the brilliant Friedrich Gilly (1798-1800) and at Berlin's Academy of Architecture (1800-02), followed by several years in Italy.
He designed furniture for Queen Louise in 1809 that, with its rich, light-coloured pearwood, play of matched grains, and romantic simplification of form in a classical milieu, anticipated the forthcoming Biedermeier period.
Becoming state architect of Prussia in 1815, Schinkel executed many commissions for King Frederick William III and other members of the royal family.

Schinkel was the greatest German architect of the 19th century, but until 1815, when he gained a senior appointment in the Public Works Department of Prussia (from which position he effectively redesigned Berlin), he worked mainly as a painter and stage designer.
His paintings are highly Romantic landscapes somewhat in the spirit of Friedrich, although more anecdotal in detail (Gothic Cathedral by a River, Staatliche Museen, Berlin, 1813-14).
His most famous designs were for Mozart's The Magic Flute (1815), in which he combined the clarity and logic of his architectural style with a feeling of mystery and fantasy.

Although his handsome New Pavilion of 1825 in Schloss Charlottenburg Park and some other work had been visible west of the wall, the great monuments on which his reputation rests are all in the east: the Schauspielhaus (theater and concert hall), the Neue Wache (royal guardhouse), and the Altes Museum, among others.
