Dahinden, Justus

Dahinden, Justus (1925– ). Swiss architect. His works have been influenced by Archigram and Metabolism, as well as by his own Christian beliefs. They include many churches and parish-centres (e.g. Heilige Geist (Holy Ghost) Church, Weingarten, Germany (1977), and Migros Centre, Ostermundingen, Switzerland (1988) ), in which he has attempted to incorporate a sensitivity to ‘biotechnics’ (life and all its processes), ‘geometrics’ (the expression of order and form), ‘psycho-logics’ (the spiritual and reasoned processes that inform the environment), and ‘cosmics’ (the universal forces of order). He has evolved a modular constructional system (the Trigon) based on the triangular prism, of which the village at Doldertal, near Zürich, is an example (1969).

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.
