Brinkman, Johannes Andreas

Brinkman, Johannes Andreas (1902–49). Rotterdam-born architect, who was in partnership from 1925 to 1936 with Leendert Cornelius van der Vlugt (1894–1936) and, from 1937 to 1948, with van den Broek. The firm produced the celebrated van Nelle tobacco-factory, Rotterdam (1926–30), on which Mart Stam also worked. Regarded as one of the purest Constructivist buildings of the period, as well as a pioneering example of Modern architecture, it was a mushroom-columned reinforced-concrete structure with large areas of curtain-walling, and freely expressed ramped connections crossing backwards and forwards between the factory-block and the warehouse in glazed elevated bridges. Brinkman and van der Vlugt collaborated with Willem van Tijen (1894–1974) on the design of the slab-shaped Bergpolder high-rise residential block in Rotterdam (1933–4), one of the earliest buildings on the piloti base made fashionable by Le Corbusier.

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.
