Hübsch, Gottlieb Heinrich Christian

Hübsch, Gottlieb Heinrich Christian (1795–1863). Accomplished German practitioner of the Rundbogenstil, and author of the theoretical book In welchem Stil sollen wir bauen? (In What Style Shall We Build?) of 1828, which created a climate of opinion antagonistic to the Neo-Classicism dominant in Baden and Prussia. Prompted by rational French arguments, notably those of Durand, Hübsch argued that style should be derived from carefully considered structural methods and a realistic approach to cost. His plumping for Byzantine Romanesque round-arched forms was based less on style than on the qualities of brick as a building material. His best work of architecture is arguably the elegant Trinkhalle (Spa Pump Room), Baden-Baden (1837–40), with its segmental arcades. He succeeded Weinbrenner (under whom he had studied) as Baurat (Building Inspector) at Karlsruhe, Baden, in 1827.

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.
