Tengbom, Ivar Justus

Tengbom, Ivar Justus (1878–1968). Swedish architect. One of the most influential of his time, he was the chief protagonist in the evolution of a simplified Neo-Classicism in the inter-war period, as exemplified in his Concert House, Stockholm (1923–8), in which the building became a blocky mass fronted by a huge portico of attenuated stripped columns, the whole reminiscent of the work of Behrens. A prolific designer, his early works, such as the Högalid Church, Stockholm (1911–23), were often in the National Romantic style inaugurated by Östberg at the Stockholm City Hall (1909), but Tengbom himself was more influenced by Nyrop and Wahlman. Other important buildings by Tengbom include the School of Economics (1925–6) and the Match Company Offices (1926–8), both in Stockholm, and the Swedish Institute of Classical Studies, Rome (1937–40).

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.
