Lynch-Robinson, Henry

Lynch-Robinson, Henry (1920–84). Ulster architect, the most controversial of those who brought Modernism to the Province after the 1939–45 war. Among his early houses, 110 Malone Road, Belfast (1949), and his own single-storey house by the shore of Lough Neagh (1952) may be cited. For a brief period he was in partnership with McKinstry, with whom he designed Greenwood School, Upper Newtownands Road, Belfast (1954–7). He was appointed local adviser on Production and Design during Festival of Britain Year (1951), and his office designed the Farmhouse of the Future (on stilts) at the Farm and Factory Exhibition. He designed several fire stations, e.g. the headquarters of the Northern Ireland Fire Authority, Lisburn, Co. Antrim. Much of his œuvre proved ephemeral, especially lounge-bars and cafés (e.g. Susan's, a typically 1950s en-semble in Howard Street, Belfast). He was in charge of hospital design in Ghana (1966–  early 1970s), but contracted polyneuritis and never walked again.

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.
