Candela Outeriño, Félix

Candela Outeriño, Félix (1910–97). Madrid-born and -educated naturalized American architect. He was influenced by the structures of Torroja, and developed a lifelong interest in shell-vaulting. He emigrated to Mexico in 1939, where he formed the firm of Cubiertas Ala with his brother Antonio. His advocacy of shell-vaults brought him commissions, including the Cosmic-Ray Pavilion, University City, Mexico City (1951–2), with its hyperbolic paraboloid concrete roof, much of which is only 15 mm thick, set on legs. His Church of the Miraculous Virgin, Mexico City (1953–5), with Enrique de la Mora y Palomar (1907–78), is Expressionist in style, also influenced by Gothic and by the work of Gaudí. He again worked with Mora on the chapel of San Vicente de Paul, Coyoacán, Mexico City (1960), which has an inverted U-shaped canopy set on rubble walls. He used mushroom-shaped umbrella-like forms at the John Lewis warehouse, Stevenage, Herts. (1963), designed with Yorke, Rosenberg, & Mardall. He was also involved in the design of the Olympic Stadium, Mexico City (1968).

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.
