Pâris, Pierre-Adrien

Pâris, Pierre-Adrien (1745–1819). French architect and pupil of Louis-François Trouard (whom he succeeded as Architect to the Cathedral of Ste-Croix, Orléans, where he worked on the west front (1787–90)), he made his reputation with his drawings of Antique remains in Italy. He designed the interiors of the Hôtel Crillon, Paris (1774), and an extraordinary but unrealized palace for the Prince-Bishop of Basel, Porrentruy (1776). His Neuchâtel Town Hall, Switzerland (1784–90), a severe essay in Neo-Classicism, has an entrance-hall containing baseless Greek Doric columns supporting low vaults, a powerful combination. His taste for the exotic and for archaeology influenced his students Percier and Fontaine. He directed some important archaeological surveys in Rome (1806–17), including work at the Colosseum.

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.
