Johansen, John Maclane

Johansen, John Maclane (1916– ). American architect. He worked with Breuer and Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill before establishing an office in 1948. At the circular Chancellery for the US Embassy, Dublin (1958–64), he employed the geometry of a continuous wave made of elegant precast concrete frames. Around the same time he experimented with the fragmentation of form, the climax of which was the Mummers' Theater, Oklahoma City (1970–1), actually three theatres loosely linked together by tubes containing passages and services, perhaps influenced by images of Archigram, Constructivism, and Brutalism. Other works include the Johansen House, Stamfordville, NY (1974), the Ellsworth House, Salisbury, CT (1976), and the Barna House, Bedford, NY (1979).

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.
