Johann Eduard Jacobsthal was a German architect and university lecturer. As an architect he specialised in railway design and was responsible for the Alexanderplatz and Bellevue stations in Berlin and the Strasbourg and Metz railway stations.
Jacobsthal taught at the Königlichen Kunstschule (Royal School of Art), Berlin, from 1870 to 1876 and in 1874 he was appointed Professor of Ornamentation at the Königlichen Bauakademie (Royal Academy of Architecture) in Berlin. In the same year he published his 'Grammatik der Ornamente', a volume in which the plates are divided into eight subject areas and are based on ancient Greek architecture and designs.
