Rau, Heinrich Heinz

Rau, Heinrich Heinz (1896–1965). German-born Israeli architect. He emigrated in 1933 and opened his own office in 1935. His early houses betray a stripped German Neo-Clas-sicism derived from the work of Schinkel. He drew up a plan for Jerusalem, concentrating on the new Government precinct and University campus. Among his works may be mentioned the Synagogue (1957) and the Einstein Institute Mathematics Building (1959), Hebrew University, Jerusalem, and the Hebrew Union College, Jerusalem (1963). He published Better Housing in England in the 1960s during a spell as Visiting Lecturer in Manchester. He retired to the Black Forest in Germany, where he died. For a brief period in the 1950s he was in partnership with Reznik.

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.
