Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff (1699 - 1753) was born in Kuckädel Manor near Crossen on the Oder (today Kuladło, Poland). He abandoned his career as a military officer in 1729 and switched to studying architecture and painting. In 1732 he became acquainted with the crown prince and later king Frederick II. His first work as an architect was an Apollo temple in the palace grounds of Neuruppin with designs taken from an ancient example.
