Jensen-Klint, Peder Vilhelm

Jensen-Klint, Peder Vilhelm (1853–1930). Danish architect, a pupil of Herholdt. His most celebrated building is Grundtvig's Church, Bispebjerg, Copenhagen, designed 1913, built 1919–26, and soundly based on configurations found in the brick Gothic churches of Northern Europe. It has a steep, stepped, gabled brick front, rather like organ-pipes, and its style is balanced between C19 Historicism and C20 Expressionism. The surrounding buildings form one composition with the church, and were completed by Jensen-Klint's son, Kaare (1888–1954), in 1940. Jensen-Klint, who was informed in his work by traditional Danish brick architecture, was an important influence on architectural education.

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.
