Lods, Marcel-Gabriel

Lods, Marcel-Gabriel (1891–1978). French architect. He was in partnership with Eugène Beaudouin from 1925 to 1940, and there-after practised on his own from 1945 in Paris. The Lods–Beaudouin partnership was responsible for building early prefabricated housing schemes at the Cité de la Muette, Drancy, Paris (1934—unfortunately remembered mostly as the transit-centre for French Jews on their way ‘to the East’), and (with Vladimir Bodiansky (1894–1966) and Prouvé) the Maison du Peuple, Clichy (1939). It also designed the layout of the World's Fair, Paris (1937). After the 1939–45 war Lods argued for the planning of all land and towns on the principles advocated by CIAM, but the fierce opposition of the German authorities saved the ancient city of Mainz from the almost total change Lods advocated (1946–8).

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.
