Wahren, Reinhard (2019) Baukünstler und Ingenieur Eine Berliner Freundschaft: Karl Friedrich Schinkel und Christian Peter Wilhelm Beuth

Zwischen Karl Friedrich Schinkel, dem genialen Baumeister und universellen Künstler, und Peter Christian Wilhelm Beuth, dem 'Vater der Ingenieure' bestand eine außergewöhnliche Freundschaft. Nach ihrer Begegnung in Berlin waren sie lebenslang miteinander verbunden ? beruflich und privat. Ihre Freundschaft war für beide nicht nur inspirierend, sondern auch überaus förderlich. Schließlich avancierten sie zu wichtigen preußischen Staatsbeamten im ersten Drittel des 19. Jahrhunderts, ohne die die Architektur besonders in Berlin undenkbar ist und Preußen den Anschluss an das Industriezeitalter verpasst hätte. Mit den wichtigsten Bauten, Aufenthaltsorten und Wirkungsstätten.
