Markelius, Sven Gottfrid

Markelius, Sven Gottfrid (1889–1972). Swedish architect and town-planner, he worked for Östberg before becoming influenced by Le Corbusier and joining CLAM (1928). He won the competition to design a Concert Hall at Hälsingborg (1925, built 1932–4), and made his reputation with the Swedish Pavilion at the New York World's Fair (1939). From 1944 to 1954 he was Director of the Stockholm Planning Commission and implemented a policy of building ‘town-sections’ fully integrated with the city, including Vällingby (from 1953) with its central pedestrian zone. He was consulting architect for the United Nations Building, NYC, and the UNESCO Building, Paris.

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.
