Guévrékian, Gabriel

Guévrékian, Gabriel (1900–70). American architect of Armenian birth. He studied in Vienna and settled in Paris in 1920 where he became a colleague of Mallet-Stevens. He gained recognition with his designs for a Boutique Simultanée and for a garden at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs in 1925, as a result of which he was commissioned to design a garden at Hyères (reconstructed in 1990), in which Art-Deco and Egyptianizing elements appeared. He designed the Villa Heim, Neuilly, outside Paris (1927–8), where the garden was broken up into small areas, including part on the roof. He was appointed Secretary-General of CIAM by Le Corbusier in 1928, but resigned in 1933 when he was appointed by the Shah City Architect and Planner of Teheran, beginning that city's transformation into a modern capital. He worked with Connell, Ward, & Lucas in England for a brief period from 1937, and after the 1939–45 war collaborated with Pingusson on the reconstruction of Saarbrücken. He emigrated to the USA in 1948 and concentrated on teaching.

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.
