Pollack, Johann Michael

Pollack, Johann Michael called Mihály (1773–1855). Vienna-born architect. Half-brother of Leopoldo Pollack, he settled in Pest in 1798 where he had a successful career as a Neo-Classical architect, (e.g. Evangelical Church (1799–1808) ). Most of his work in Pest was for apartment-blocks and mansions with restrained façades and internal courts (e.g. Pollack House, Jossef Attila Street 6 (1822) and Festetits Mansion (1802–6) ). He also designed the County Hall, Szekszárd (1828–36), Festetits Palace, Dég, near Enying (1811–15), Ludoviceum, Pest (1828–36), Vigado Concert Hall (1829–32—destroyed), and Hungarian National Museum, Pest (1836–46—his masterpiece, incorporating a circular hall with dome modelled on that of the Pantheon, Rome). At Pécs (Fünfkirchen) he designed a Gothic Revival façade for the Cathedral (1807–25—destroyed when von Schmidt rebuilt it in a Neo-Romanesque style (1882–91).

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.
