Schumacher, Friedrich Wilhelm

Schumacher, Friedrich Wilhelm, called Fritz Schumacher (1869–1947). German architect. He directed the German Arts-and-Crafts exhibition in Dresden (1906) and was a founding-member of the Deutscher Werkbund (1907). He advised on the Garden City at Hellerau, designed the crematorium at Dresden, the Handelshochschule, Leipzig, and many houses while in Dresden before becoming City Architect of Hamburg (1909–33). His work there was influenced by the North-German traditional brick buildings with steeply pitched tile roofs, but after the 1914–18 war his designs became angular, hard, and flat-roofed. He published Die Kleinwohnung (The Small Dwelling—1917) in which he argued for industrialized mass-production. Other books include considerations of the problems of large conurbations, planning, policics, and style. He was a pioneer of regional planning, notably at Hamburg. His best work is probably the Hamburg Stadtpark (1910–24).

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.
