Nebelong, Niels Sigfried

Nebelong, Niels Sigfried. (1806–71). Danish architect. A pupil of Hetsch and Labrouste, he was an exponent of Schinkelesque Neo-Classicism (e.g. J. C. Jacobsen's villa at Carls-berg, Copenhagen (1852–4) ), but later turned to other aspects of Historicism. He used a Gothic Revival style for the new cloister at Slagelse (1857–8). His social commitment led to his philanthropic housing for the working classes at Christianshavn (1851), influenced by the work of Henry Roberts in England.

His brother, Johan Henrik Nebelong (1817–71) followed his stylistic development. Resident in Norway (1840–53), he designed the Royal Summer Residence, Oscarshall in Bygdøy, Oslo (1847–52—Neo-Gothic with Classical interiors), and many public and private buildings. After he returned to Denmark he collaborated with Bindesbøll in the design of the mental-hospital at Oringe (1853–7).

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.
