Jujol, Josep Maria

Jujol, Josep Maria ( Josep Maria i Gibert), (1879–1949). Catalan architect, who, in his early years, was an important collaborator (1906–10) with Gaudí, with whom he formed the studio of the Sagrada Familia. Among Gaudí's works (in the creation of which he had a significant part) the Casa Batlló (1904–6), the Casa Milá (1901–10), and the Parque Güell (1900–14), all in Barcelona, and the choir of Palma Cathedral, Mallorca (1904–14), may be cited. His own architecture employed unusual and eclectic motifs from diverse sources, and so resembled a type of collage as a means of transforming and combining elements in his compositions: a good example of this is his Torre Bofarull, Els Palleresos, Tarragona (1914–30). He also designed several churches and shrines, including those at Vistabella, Tarragona (1918–23— arguably one of his best buildings), and Montserrat in Montferri (1926–9). In his later years, as with many of his contemporaries, he turned to Classicism. He was a gifted draughtsman and painter.

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.
