Charles Philippe Dieussart
Charles Philippe Dieussart (also Charles Philipp) (ca. 1625-1696) was a Dutch architect and sculptor, active in Germany in the second half of the seventeenth century. He is mentioned in the Theatrum architecturae civilis (Bamberg 1697). Most notably, he designed the Jagdschloss Glienicke, today a UNESCO World-Heritage site.
Dieussart was descended from Huguenots who had moved to Holland. In 1657 he entered the service of Duke Gustav Adolf of Mecklenburg-Güstrow. His first important commission, which remained among his most important contributions, was the Rossewitz Castle, the first Baroque building in Mecklenburg. Also well-known is the tomb he designed for Günther von Passow the Güstrow Cathedral.
