MBM Arquitectes

MBM Arquitectes. Martorell-Bohigas-Mackay Arquitectes was established in Barcelona, Spain (1962), by Josep Maria Martorell i Codina (1925– ), Oriol Bohigas i Guardiola (1925– ), and David John Mackay (1933– ), joined in 1985 by Albert Puigdomenech i Alonso (1944– ). An influential firm, it was largely responsible for the transformation of that city up to and beyond the Olympic Games (1992). Among significant designs were the Pavilion of the Future, Expo 92, Seville (1992), and the Harbourmaster's House and Sailing School, Olympic Port, Barcelona (1989–91). In the Mollet City Block, Barcelona (1983–7), many typologies were explored, while the high-level street, so usually a disaster, was made to work. Other buildings include the Villa Escarrer, Palma de Mallorca (1985–8), in which certain geometries derived from Palladio were explored, and the earlier Santa Agueda development, Benicassim, Castelló (1966–7).

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.
