Smith, Arnold Dunbar

Smith, Arnold Dunbar (1866–1933). English architect. He entered into partnership with Cecil Claude Brewer (1871–1918) in 1895, and they won the competition to design the Passmore Edwards Settlement (now Mary Ward Centre), Tavistock Place, London (1896–8). It is a delightful building, with influences from Voysey in the cornice and roof, Harrison Townsend in the vaguely Sezessionist porch, and Shaw in the fenestration. Smith & Brewer designed Little Barley End, Tring, Herts. (1899), and were pioneers of the Neo-Classical Revival with their severe National Museum of Wales, Cathays Park, Cardiff (1910), which played an important role in establishing the American Beaux-Arts style of Classicism in England. Their best-known work was Heal's, Tottenham Court Road, London (1916), a reticent stripped Classical design described by Pevsner as the ‘best commercial front of its date’.

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.
