Laloux, Victor-Alexandre-Frédéric

Laloux, Victor-Alexandre-Frédéric (1850–1937). French architect. Early in his career he published a book on Greek architecture (1888), and with Paul Monceaux (1859–1941), another tome on Olympia (1889). Perhaps, as a result of these studies, his Beaux-Arts Classicism was dignified and serious, avoiding the Baroque extravagances of C. Garnier and his followers. He designed the Gare du Quai d'Orsay, Paris (1896–1900), and the Station at Tours (1895–8): both are scholarly, handsome, and competent works. Some of his most distinguished work was in Tours, his birth-place, including the Byzantino-Romanesque Basilique St-Martin (1887–1924—his first major building, reminiscent of designs by Abadie) and the Hôtel de Ville (1896–1904).

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.
