Crowe, Dame Sylvia

Crowe, Dame Sylvia (1901–97). English landscape-architect. From 1945 she was a landscape consultant for the New Towns (e.g. Basildon, Harlow), and for new power stations. In 1964 she was appointed to advise the Forestry Commission, in which position she argued for a respect for ecological principles. From 1969 she was involved in the landscaping of areas round reservoirs. She designed the master-plan for the Commonwealth Gardens, Canberra, Australia, and the roof-garden of the Scottish Widows' Fund building in Edinburgh (1976). Her writings included Garden Design (1958, 1994), The Landscape of Power (1958), The Landscape of Roads (1960), and (with M. Mitchell) The Pattern of Landscape (1988).

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.
