Sánz de Oíza, Francisco Javier

Sánz de Oíza, Francisco Javier (1918–2000). Spanish architect. He won the competition for the Aránzazu basilica (1949—with Laorga). Shortly afterwards he began to move towards acceptance of the Modern Movement, and in the 1950s his work became openly eclectic, drawing on the works of Aalto, L. I. Kahn, and Frank Lloyd Wright, leading to his Torres Blancas apartments, Madrid (1959–68). His chapel on the Camino de Santiago (1954—with Romaní y Oteiza), was influenced by Mies van der Rohe, and sophisticated technology was employed in his Banco de Bilbao Vizcayano, Azca, Madrid (1972–80).

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.
