Bryggman, Erik William

Bryggman, Erik William (1891–1955). Finnish architect. Born in Turku, he studied architecture in Helsinki, graduating in 1916. He set up his own office in Turku in 1923, where Aino and Alvar Aalto worked with him for a brief period. The collaboration produced the important design for the 1929 Exhibition to celebrate seven centuries of the city's existence. In 1930 Bryggman won the Grand Prix at the Antwerp World Fair for his Finnish pavilion, an essay in birch plywood, and in 1938 his well-known design for the cemetery chapel at Turku was commenced, though not completed until 1941. Other buildings by him include Vierumäki sports-club (1931–6), the library of Åbo Academy, Turku (1933–6), and the Riihimäki water-tower (1952).

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.
