Paul, Bruno

Paul, Bruno (1874–1968). German member of the Deutscher Werkbund, designer of machine-made furniture, the Typen-Möbel. His achievements in standardization impressed Le Corbusier. Stylistically his architectural work was influenced by the Italian Renaissance, then the Sezession, Neo-Biedermeier,Art Deco, and finally International Modernism. He designed the Jugendstil hunting-room for the Paris Exposition Universelle (1900—which made such an impression it was shown again at the 1901 Munich and 1902 Turin Exhibitions); the interiors of several ships(including Kronprinzessin Cecilie (Crown-Princess Cecilie 1907) and Prinz Friedrich Wilhelm (1908)); the beer-hall, restaurant, and other public rooms for the Werkbund Exhibition, Cologne (1914); and Das Plattenhaus (Standard House), Hellerau, near Dresden (1925). As well as numerous interiors (e.g. for the luxurious liner Bremen (1927) ), he designed many large villas in the Berlin suburbs (e.g. Villa Warmboldt, Wilmersdorf (1925–6)—which combined tradition with modern horizontal windows), International Modernist offices (e.g. Disch offices, Cologne (1929) ), and stripped Classical buildings (e.g. Gerling Insurance Co., Cologne (1930) ). In 1929 he formed a brief association with Mies van der Rohe.

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:
