Jan Santini Aichel

Jan Santini Aichel (1677-1723) was a Czech architect that stylizes in Baroque Gothic architecture.  A major influence for him was Francesco Borromini, which is apparent in Aichel's star-shaped forms and complex symbolism. He died at a young age of 46, and therefore some of his works remain unfinished.

Here are a few of his works:
