Latz, Peter

Latz, Peter (1939– ). German landscape-architect. With his wife, Anneliese, he created a public park in the ruined industrial port at Saarbrücken (1979–89), incorporating some parts of the remaining buildings. On a derelict site in Duisburg the firm designed a park to interpret the history of the town's industrial past, notably its cast-iron works. Another major scheme is the arboretum and park in Luxembourg in which natural features and powerful geometries are juxtaposed (1991–2000). Latz and his wife have been interested in ecological problems, and have worked on the landscaping of housing with several architects.

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.
