Schattner, Karl-Josef

Schattner, Karl-Josef (1924– ). German architect. Most of his works were carried out in his capacity as Architect to the Diocese of Eichstätt, and he built up his own Dombauhütte (Cathedral Workshop) employing a team of craftsmen. The founding of the University at Eichstätt enabled Schattner to conserve and adapt the many historic buildings, whereas most of his new works were uncompromisingly radical and modern, erected within the historical context. Influenced by William Morris's philosophies, he was one of the more sensitive architects working on old buildings in a Germany that rather often favoured wholesale reconstructions. His works include the Archives Building (1989–93), the conversion and extension of Schloss Hirschberg (1987–92), and the Episcopal Seminary (1981–93). His rational approach has much in common with that of the Ticinese School and his Italian contemporary Scarpa.

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.
