Hardwick, Philip

Hardwick, Philip (1792–1870). English architect, he commenced practice with his father, Thomas (1752–1829), who had been a pupil of Chambers and later designed St Marylebone Parish Church, London (1813–17). Philip held several official posts, and was a competent and eclectic designer in various styles. He is best known for the nobly monumental Doric propylaeum at Euston Station, London (1836–40—needlessly demolished 1962), but he was capable of a remarkably plain, robust Neo-Classicism, as in his utilitarian brick St Katharine's Docks and Warehouses, London (1827–9). His Tuscan Dock Traffic Office, Albert Dock, Liverpool (1846–7), is a powerful design, and he also collaborated with Jesse Hartley on the designs of the warehouses there. His Goldsmiths' Hall, Foster Lane (1829–35), and City Club, Old Broad Street (1833–4), both in London, are typical of his robust Baroque and Classical styles. With his son, P. C. Hardwick, he was responsible for the Tudor Gothic Hall and Library, Lincoln's Inn, London (1843–5), an accomplished design for its date, on which the young Pearson also worked.

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.
