Monteiro, José Luis

Monteiro, José Luis (1849–1942). Portuguese architect. He studied under Pascal and worked on the reconstruction of the Hôtel de Ville, Paris (1874–8), before establishing himself in Lisbon, where he designed several public buildings much influenced by developments in France. His works include the Rocío Central Railway Station (1886–7—with a Manueline Revival façade), the Hotel Palace (1890–2), the Liceu Central (1887), and the Church of the Angels (1908–11). His architectural styles were eclectic, including Neo-Classicism, French Second Empire, and even English Arts-and-Crafts (the latter especially for his private houses). He used metal for the interior of the Railway Station and the Sala de Portugal, Sociedade de Geografia, Lisbon (1897). He was Professor of Architecture, Escola de Belas Letras, Lisbon (1881–1920), and therefore an influence on later Portuguese 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.
