Chochol, Josef

Chochol, Josef (1880–1956). Influenced by the work of Otto Wagner through the latter's pupil Jan Kotěra, Chochol became an important figure in Bohemia and Moravia. Before 1914 he dabbled with Expressionism, notably in the apartment-block in Neklan Street, Prague (1913), where prismatic shapes and inclined planes predominate. He was a leading practitioner of Cubism in architecture, as his villa below Vyšehrad Hill, Prague (1912–14), demonstrates. The applied decoration has no right angles, and virtually no surface is parallel to the outlines of the plan. His elimination of Historicism and the reduction of façades to elementary shapes led him to experiment with Constructivism in the 1920s.

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.
