Hegemann, Werner Manfred Maria Ellis

Hegemann, Werner Manfred Maria Ellis (1881–1936). German architect and planner, he designed (in association with Elbert Peets (1881–1936)) several Garden Suburbs in the USA, and (again with Peets), published The American Vitruvius: An Architects' Handbook of Civic Art (1922), an important work in city-planning literature in which Beaux-Arts ideas and the influence of Sitte are clear. In Berlin he edited Wasmuths Monatshefte für Baukunst und Städtebau (Wasmuth's Monthly Periodicals for Architecture and Town Planning) from 1922, and wrote prolifically on architecture and planning. He was a major influence in the USA, especially after he returned to the USA having fallen foul of Nazism, which he denounced in a volume published in 1933.

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.
