Scott, Michael John

Scott, Michael John (1905–89). Irish architect. A devotee of International Modernism since the 1930s, he was one of the first to build in the style of Gropius and his associates in Ireland, as with St Lawrence's Community School, Drogheda, Co. Louth (1934), and the Scott House, Sandycove Point, Co. Dublin (1938). Among his large buildings were the Laois County Hospital, Portlaoise (1936–7), the Offaly County Hospital, Tullamore (1937), the Ritz Cinema, Athlone, Co. Westmeath (1940), the Central Bus Station, Store Street, Dublin (1950–3), the Radio Telefís Éireann Studios, Dublin (1959–61), and the Brown & Polson factory, Dublin (1959). From 1959 his style became influenced by that of Mies van der Rohe, as with the Carroll Factory, Dundalk, Co. Louth (1970), and the Bank of Ireland Building, Baggot Street, Dublin (1968–73). From 1966 his firm became Scott, Tallon, Walker.

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.
