Riemerschmid, Richard

Riemerschmid, Richard (1868–1957). German Arts-and-Crafts architect, a founding member (with Behrens and others) of the Munich Vereinigten Werkstätten für Kunst und Handwerk (United Workshops for Arts and Crafts—1896) and of the Deutscher Werkbund (1907), who was an influential designer in Germany from the turn of the century until the mid-1920s. His works include the Jugendstil Kammertheater (Chamber Theatre) in the Schauspielhaus (Play House), Munich (1901), and he contributed (with Tessenow and others) to the design at the Garden City, Hellerau, near Dresden (1907). German vernacular styles and English Arts-and-Crafts influences were often synthesized in his architecture, as in his own house at Pasing (1896). By the time he was designing buildings at Hellerau (1910) his work was turning to stripped Neo-Classicism.

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.
