English: Georg Ludwig Friedrich Laves (15 December 1788 – 30 April 1864) was a German architect, engineer and urban planner. Born in Uslar, Lower Saxony, he lived and worked most time in the city of Hanover and also died there. Being the leading architect (Oberhofbaudirektor, "court master builder") of the Kingdom of Hanover, he has had great influence on the urban development of this town. Laves was, beside Karl Friedrich Schinkel in Prussia and Leo von Klenze in Bavaria, one of the most reknowned neoclassical style architects of Germany. As an engineer he developed a special bridge construction principle with a typical fish belly design, the so called "Lavesbrücke". Laves has found his last resting place at Engesohde Cemetery (Engesohder Friedhof) in Hanover.
