Peichl, Gustav

Peichl, Gustav (1928– ). Leading Austrian architect. His early work made references to the International Modernism of the 1930s but in the 1960s he began to experiment with the expression of services, as in the Rehabilitation Centre for the Mentally Retarded at Vienna-Meidling (1965–7). His best-known buildings are the regional studios of the Austrian State Radio (ÖRF), where the various elements are grouped around large tall entrance-halls through which shiny metalwork is exposed. Good examples are the ÖRF studios at Salzburg (1968–72) and Eisenstadt (1981–3) which exploit the Machine Aesthetic. Later still, he appears to have become more interested in contextual design, as with the extension to the Städel Museum, Frankfurt (1987–90). Throughout his career he has been well known as the caricaturist ‘Ironimus’.

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.
