Foulston, John

Foulston, John (1772–1842). English architect. He established himself in Plymouth, Devon, where he became the leading practitioner. His Royal Hotel, Assembly Rooms, and Theatre (1811–22—demolished) employed much cast and wrought iron in its construction, and was made all the more interesting for the grouping of three buildings into one coherent composition. Most of his work was in the Classical manner of the Regency period, with Greek Orders and detail applied to stucco terraces, but at Ker Street, Devonport, Plymouth, he created an eclectic Picturesque group of buildings, including an Egyptian Revival Library (1823), a Baptist Chapel in the Hindoo style (1824), a Greek Doric Town Hall (1821–3), and a Doric Column (1824). He published The Public Buildings erected in the West of England, as designed by J. Foulston (1838), and was in partnership with George Wightwick from c.1830.

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.
