Rainer, Roland

Rainer, Roland (1910–2004). Austrian architect and town-planner. His influence since the 1939–45 war has been considerable, not only as a practitioner, but as a teacher. In his role as Director of Planning for the City of Vienna (1958–63) he argued for an ecologically aware approach to design. He (with others) was responsible for the Veitingergasse Housing Estate, Vienna (1953–4), and the Puchenau Garden City near Linz, Austria (1964–93), both of which demonstrated his opposition to the high-density housing promoted in Vienna in the 1920s by e.g. Ehn, as well as his advocacy of decentralized developments. He designed Municipal buildings in Vienna (1958), Bremen, Germany (1963–4), and Ludwigshafen, Germany (1962–5), and housing developments at Kassel, Germany (1980), Tamariskengasse, Vienna (1985–93), and Auwiesen, Linz (1990–3). He published many books, including Livable Environments (1972).

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.
