Roth, Emery

Roth, Emery (1871–1948). Hungarian-born American architect. He emigrated to Chicago, IL, and worked for Burnham & Root before joining (1895) Richard Morris Hunt. Having established his own office in 1898, he designed numerous high-rise buildings in NYC, many of them apartment-blocks or hotels, in which he used a simplified Classicism derived form the World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago (1893), mingled with other themes drawn from the Aesthetic Movement and Art Nouveau. Among his works in NYC may be cited 509 West 121st Street (1910–11), 601 West End Avenue (1915–16), the Beresford Apartments, Central Park West (1928–9), the fine San Remo Apartments, Central Park West (1928–9), the Art-Deco Ardsley Apartments (1930–1), and the Normandie Apartments (1938–40). His sons Julian (1902–92) and Richard (1905–88), and grandson Richard II (1933– ) continued the practice, designing Modernist buildings (e.g. the Look Building, Madison Avenue (1946–50). The firm collaborated with Yamasaki on the twin-towered World Trade Center, NYC (1964–74— destroyed 11 September 2001).

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.
