Thiersch, Friedrich von

Thiersch, Friedrich von (1852–1921). German architect and teacher, much affected by Sem-per's ideas. He was one of the most influential architects in Southern Germany, designing many important buildings, some in a Rundbogenstil, and others in a Classical style combining the Neo-Classicism and Renaissance influences so common in C19 Germany. Among his works are the Munich Palace of Justice (1887–97 and 1902–5), the remodelling of the Kurhaus (Cure House for the Spa), Wiesbaden (1904–7), originally designed by Johann Christian Zais (1770–1820) in a simplified Palladian style, and the Festhalle, Frankfurt-am-Main (1906–9). His pupils included Bonatz, Theodor Fischer, W. Gropius, Ernst May, and Tessenow. His brother, August (1843–1916), was also an architect, and influenced ecclesiastical design: his best work was the Church of St Ursula, Munich (1894–7— in a Renaissance Revival style).

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.
