Baerwald, Alexander

Baerwald, Alexander (1877–1930). German architect. He designed the Technion University buildings (1912–24) and the Arthur Biram Reali School (1910–14), both in Haifa, essays in Historicism with a strong infusion of Islamic motifs and Jewish symbolism. He also designed numerous other buildings in Palestine, and was one of the first in C20 to bring acade-mically-based architecture into that country. His work included the Anglo-Palestine Bank (1924), a home for Hermann Struck (1876–1944), and several other buildings in Haifa. He assisted Ihne during the building of the Neo-Baroque Königliche Bibliothek, Berlin (1908–13—now the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin), and designed several other works in the German capital. He settled in Palestine in 1925, and designed the Central Hospital, Afula (1928), and the Phillips House, Haifa (1929–30). As Professor of Architecture at the Technion he brought Prussian academic discipline and rigour to his adopted country.

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.
