Holzmeister, Clemens

Holzmeister, Clemens (1886–1983). Austrian architect, he was an influential teacher, numbering among his pupils Hollein, Holzbauer, and Peichl, while building many works throughout his career. Much of his design drew on historical precedent, even when he was attracted to Expressionism, as in the City Crematorium, Vienna (1921–3). His Eichmann Country House, Litzlberg, Seewalchen (1926–8), was almost Arcadian in its relation to nature, but his more monumental buildings, such as those for the Government in Ankara, Turkey (1931–4), show his grasp of a tradition based on Classicism. He was responsible for developing the Festspielhaus (Festival Theatre), Hofstallgasse, in Salzburg (1926–60), tucked in between a rocky eminence and Fischer von Erlach's Kollegienkirche (College or University Church), and built many churches, among which the Maria Hilf, Bregenz-Vorkloster (1924–31), Judas Thaddeus in der Krim, Vienna (1924–32), St Adalbert, Berlin (1933), Seipel-Dollfuss Memorial, Vienna (1933–4), and the Evangelical Church, Kitzbühel (1960–2), may be mentioned. His output was prodigious.

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:

  • 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.
