Carl Gotthard Langhans, Brandenburger Tor
After designing some late-baroque buildings in his home province of Silesia, C. G. Langhans became one of the earliest representatives of the new Greek-inspired classicism in Germany. His extensive journeys through Italy, France, England and the Netherlands had encouraged this change of style.
In order to harmonise his buildings within their surroundings, however, he often mixed the neo-classicist style with elements of Roman baroque and the traditional classicism of Andrea Palladio.
