Schönthal, Otto

Schönthal, Otto (1878–1961). Austrian architect. He was a pupil of Wagner, and worked for him, notably on Vienna's Stadtbahn, Post Office, and the Am Steinhof lunatic asylum. On his own account he designed several fine buildings, including the Villa Vojcsik, Linzer Strasse (1901–2—restored 1975–82). He became joint-editor of the influential journal, Der Architekt, in 1908, and sole editor from 1909 to 1915. He established his own practice with Emil Hoppe (1876–1957) and Marcel Kammerer (1878–1969) which flourished in Vienna just before the catastrophe of 1914–18. In the inter-war period Schönthal and Hoppe were involved in the huge public housing programme for Vienna. In 1948–50 he designed the Eiselsberg-Hof, Wimmergasse 40–48, a late essay in which traces of the Wagnerschule tradition may be detected.

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.
