Wilford, Michael

Wilford, Michael (1938– ). English architect. He assisted Stirling & Gowan (1960–3) before working with Stirling only, becoming a partner in James Stirling Michael Wilford & Associates (1971–92), and since 1993 has been senior partner in Michael Wilford & Partners. He worked with Stirling & Gowan on the University of Leicester Engineering Building (1959–63), and with Stirling on many projects, including the Staatsgalerie (State Gallery), Stuttgart, Germany (1977–84), No. 1 Poultry, City of London (from 1986), and the Lowry Centre, Salford, Manchester (from 1991). Since Stirling's death his practice has developed, especially in Germany, and his work has attracted considerable critical attention. In 1997 the Stuttgart Music-School (1987–95) won the Stirling Prize, the year in which the Gateway Building, Stühlingen, was completed.

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.
