Förster, Christian Friedrich Ludwig, Ritter von

Förster, Christian Friedrich Ludwig, Ritter von (1799–1863). Bavarian-born architect. He designed the Ringstrasse (begun 1858) and the Romanesque Byzantine Revival Arsenal (with Theophil von Hansen) of 1850–6, both in Vienna. He was Professor at the Vienna Academy (1843–6), and influenced the following generation of Viennese architects through the Allgemeine Bauzeitung (Universal Building Journal—founded 1836) and his own studio. His son, Emil von Förster (1838–1909), worked with him for a time, and then for the State, remodelling the Hofburg (Imperial Palace) and the Burgtheater (Court Theatre) (1895–7), designing the Allgemeine Österreichische Baugesellschaft (Universal Austrian Building Corporation—1872–4) and the Dorotheum (1898–1901), all in Vienna.

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.
