Wright, Frank Lloyd, jun

Wright, Frank Lloyd, jun. (1890–1978). American architect, elder son of Frank Lloyd Lincoln Wright. He was trained in his father's studio, and helped (1909) to prepare the drawings for the celebrated Wasmuth portfolio (1910). He later worked for the Boston firm of Olmsted, then with his father on the Barnsdall Hollyhock House (1916–21) and on the various concrete-block houses of the 1920s, all in CA. His own output included houses constructed of precast concrete blocks (e.g. Derby House, Chevy Chase, CA (1926) ), whilst pre-Columbian and Art Deco motifs occurred in the Sowden House, Los Angeles (1926), and the Samuel-Navarro House, Hollywood, CA (1926–8). He was responsible for the shell-concrete structure at the Hollywood Bowl, CA (1924–5 and 1928). The Swedenborg Memorial Wayfarer's Chapel, Palos Verdes, CA (1946–71), in which the architecture is integrated with the landscape, is arguably his best work.

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.
