Lacoste, Henry

Lacoste, Henry (1885–1968). Belgian archi-tect. His work defies description, as it was not dependent on any recognized style or move-ment, and remained untouched by Inter-national Modernism. The Queen Elisabeth Medical Institute, Jean-Jacques Crocqlaan, Jette, Brussels (1927), possessed certain ele-ments of Art Deco, but the Pion House, a chunky structure of rubble and brick in the Rue de l'Enclos Saint-Martin, Doornik (1935), not only drew on traditional materials, but on over-emphasis of parts as well, perhaps influenced by aspects of building in the Belgian Congo. This influence was also present in the portal of the Church at Beringen (1938–48), where strong patterns and vivid modelling are reminiscent of the powerful work of the equally idiosyncratic Bellot.

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.
