"Lietuvos architektūros istorijos" III tome jis paminėtas tik prie vieno objekto (Palendrių oratorija), nors suprojektavo daug dėmesio vertų pastatų. Šiuo straipsniu siekiame supažindinti skaitytoją su šio kūrybingo inžinieriaus architekto biografija ir architektūrine kūryba. [...]. [Iš straipsnio, p. 88]
