Owen, Segar

Owen, Segar (1874–1929). English architect. He was articled to and later (1896) was in partnership with his father, William Owen (1850–1910), architect, of Warrington, Ches. In 1895–6 he worked with G. E. Street. At Port Sunlight, Ches., William refined William Hesketh Lever's (1851–1925) plan for the layout of the town, and designed the first 28 cottages and entrance-lodge. W. & S. Owen's designs for houses at Port Sunlight often quoted the half-timbered gabled vernacular style of Cheshire but also employed ogee gables, vitrified diaper-work, and walls of brick and terracotta. Among other buildings at Port Sunlight are Hulme Hall (1901) and the very distinguished Gothic Christ Church (1902–4), where the Perpendicular style was made more four-square and robust. Segar Owen designed the severe Neo-Classical Art Gallery at Port Sunlight (1914–22). See also company town.

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.
