Kiley, Daniel Urban

Kiley, Daniel Urban (1912–2004). American architect and landscape-architect, a disciple of Olmsted. He began to collaborate with Eero Saarinen in 1947 on the competition for the design of the Jefferson Memorial Park, St Louis, MO, but the realized scheme (including the Gateway Arch) was Saarinen's. He designed the landscaping at Saarinen's Irwin Miller House, Columbus, IN (1955–7), and the approaches to the same architect's Dulles Airport, Washington, DC (1955–8). Kiley worked with several American architects: he designed the terrace and roof-gardens of Roche & Dinke-loo's Oakland Museum, CA (1961–9), and the water-garden for Pei's Fountain Place, Dallas, TX (mid-1980s). Among other works may be cited the Henry Moore Sculpture Garden, Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, MO (1987–9), the Scholar Garden, Rockefeller University, Manhattan, NYC (early 1990s), the interior atria of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC (1970–1), the Pierpont Morgan Library, NYC (1987–8), the European Court of Human Rights, Strasbourg, France (1991–2—with Richard Rogers), and the National Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC (1982–3— with SOM). One of his earlier works as an architect was the Court for the Nuremberg Trials (1945).

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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most 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.
