Falkner, Harold

Falkner, Harold (1875–1963). English architect, most of whose work was realized in the Farnham-Godalming area of Surrey. An Arts-and-Crafts designer, his work evolved into a Colonial Revival Neo-Georgian style of fine quality, and then veered towards a free Tudor vernacular (e.g. nine houses (1921–63) at Dippenhall, Farnham, some incorporating genuine timber-framed buildings brought from elsewhere, including two Glos. barns placed end to end, called Burles (completed 1937) ). Among Falkner's works may be cited the Town Hall (1930–4), the Lutyensque Swimming Pool (1897), the Surrey & Hants News office (1930s), all in Farnham, North Munstead farm, Munstead (c.1920), and Tancredsford, Tilford (c.1920). All his work was of the highest quality. He was a voluble critic of the Modern Movement, and frequently attacked the architectural Establishment.

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.
