Correa, Charles Mark

Correa, Charles Mark (1930– ). Indian architect. He trained under Buckminster Fuller and Yamasaki, and then rejected Modernism in favour of an economical, adaptable architecture derived from Indian vernacular traditions using local materials in order to respond to climatic and financial parameters. Among his works may be cited the National Crafts Museum, New Delhi (1975–91—arranged as a sequence of spaces and courtyards linked by internal ‘streets’); the Jawahar Kala Cultural Centre, Jaipur (1986–92—in which the complexities of the plan owe something to labyrinths); the British Council Building, New Delhi 1990–2); and the Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics, Pune (1988–92). His writings include The New Landscape (1989) and The Ritualistic Pathway: Five Projects (1992).

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.
