Bicknell, Julian

Bicknell, Julian (1945– ). English architect. His works (as Julian Bicknell & Associates) include the restoration and conversion of the C19 Old Gaol, Abingdon, Oxon., into an arts and sports centre (1972–80); alterations to the stables (1977), re-creation of the garden-hall (1980), and the design of the new library (1982–3) all at Castle Howard, Yorks.; the restoration of Bedford School, Beds., including remodelling of the Great Hall (1980–3); Henbury Rotonda, near Macclesfield, Ches. (1983–7—a new house, a convincing essay in C20 Palladianism, based on Campbell's Mereworth Castle, Kent, and Palladio's Villa Capra, Vicenza); Upton Viva, Warwicks. (1987–9—a new country-house); High Corner, Ashstead, Surrey (1987–9—a new house); and the Georgian Club, Tokyo (1994–5). He has also designed a new stable-court at Wardour Castle, Wilts. (completed 2002), based on original C18 drawings by John Wood. Among completed buildings Forbes House, Ham Common, London (1998), Redcliffe College, Chiswick, London (2000), and Royal Court House, Takasaki, Japan (2002), may be cited. His work draws on the Arts-and-Crafts, Classical, and vernacular traditions, involving close collaboration with craftsmen: good examples include the library at Cranborne Manor, Dorset (1998–2000), and alterations to and renovation of the Chertsey Museum, Surrey (completed 2003). The firm published (2000) a finely-printed monograph which shows the range of its work.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most 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.
