Shinohara, Kazuo

Shinohara, Kazuo (1925– ). Japanese architect. His best-known works are the house in Uehara, Tokyo (1975–6), with its massive truss-like structure inside, a development of the free-standing columnar theme first used in the ‘House in White’, Tokyo (1966). His designs are characterized by a powerful expression of architectural elements which he uses in symbolic ways, as in the ‘Unfinished House’, Tokyo (1970). His work gradually became more expressive and extreme, as in the fractured segments of the Karuizawa house (1975). He has attempted to obliterate all sentimentality from his designs, and moved away from his early interest in Japanese vernacular traditions (e.g. the Tokyo Institute of Technology Centennial Hall (1987)). He published Residential Architecture (1964), Theories on Residences (1970), 16 Houses and Architectural Theory (1971), and much else.

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.
