Aigner, Chrystian Piotr

Aigner, Chrystian Piotr (1756–1841). One of the leading architects and theorists of Polish Neo-Classicism, he designed the façade of the Church of St Anna, Warsaw (1786), the Marynka Palace at Puławy (1790), and the Garden of Allusions at Puławy (1798 onwards, with its circular temple of the Sybil, Gothic house, Chinese pavilion, remarkable rotunda-church (1800–3) with portico based on the Pantheon, Rome, and other fabriques). He was responsible for the orangery and Neo-Gothic elevation of the castle at Łańcut, and at Wilanów, Warsaw, he landscaped the grounds and erected the Gothic gallery and Morysinek Rotunda (1802–12). He reworked (1806–8) the house at Natolin originally designed by Zug, making it more severe. Later, he rebuilt the Namiestnikowski Palace (1818–19), and designed the Pantheon-like Church of St Aleksander (1818–25), both in Warsaw.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
