Stam, Martinus Adrianus

Stam, Martinus Adrianus, called Mart (1899–1986). Dutch architect. Much of his work was carried out with others, notably Poelzig and Max Taut (1922), Brinkman and van der Vlugt (1925–8), and Ernst May (1930–4). He designed terrace-houses for the Weissenhofsiedlung in Stuttgart (1927), and was invited by Hannes Meyer to teach at the Bauhaus (1928–9). A founding-member of CIAM, he was firmly of Leftist political persuasion, and worked (1930–4) with May in the Soviet Union on the New Towns. With El Lissitzky, he was associated with Constructivism (1924–5). After the 1939–45 war he worked in Dresden and East Berlin until 1952 when he settled for a while in Amsterdam before retiring to Switzerland. His best-known work is the van Nelle Tobacco Factory in Rotterdam, with Brinkman and van der Vlugt (1926–30).

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.
