Schwartz, Martha

Schwartz, Martha (1950– ). American land-scape-architect. She worked (1976–82) with Sasaki and then (1984–90) with Walker. Among her designs the Bagel Garden (with shellac-painted bagels, pebbles, and box-hedges), Back Bay, Boston, MA (1979), the King County Gaol Plaza, Seattle, WA (1982–7—using ceramics), the roof-garden at the Institute for Biomedical Research, Cambridge, MA (1985–6), and the Jacob Javits Plaza, NYC (1996), displayed her Minimalist tendencies. For the Rio Shopping Center, Atlanta, GA (designed by Arquitectonica), she created the plaza complete with large gilded frogs (1988). Other schemes employed wild flowers and grasses, mounds of ceramic tiles, and water-features, in many of which aspects of popular art, Land Art, and even Kitsch, were combined. In the UK she created Exchange Square, Manchester, on SLOAP between the old Corn Exchange and new buildings replacing the bombed Arndale Centre (2000–2).

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.
