Fehn, Sverre

Fehn, Sverre (1924– ). Norwegian architect. With Korsmo and others he was a founder member of the Norwegian division of CIAM, the main aim of which was to oppose New Empiricism and further the Modern Movement. With Geir Grung (1926–89), he designed the House of Crafts, Maihaugen, Lillehammer (1949–56), and the Økern Home for the Elderly, Oslo (1955): the latter was conceived as a large, low-set concrete-and-glass block set in a mature park. In contrast, the Skådalen Residential School, Oslo (1976–7), was designed as a series of small blocks, constructed of red brick, timber, and concrete. His Hadmarksmuseet, Hamar (1973), consisted of an addition to fragments of a medieval building, perhaps not as successful as some have claimed. He was responsible for the Norwegian Pavilion at the Exposition Universelle, Brussels (1958), and for the Scandinavian Pavilions at the Venice Biennales of 1959 and 1964.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most 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.
