Zeidler, Eberhard Heinrich

Zeidler, Eberhard Heinrich (1926– ). German-born architect, trained at the Bauhaus after it reopened in Weimar after 1945, he settled in Canada in 1951 (naturalized 1956). From the late 1960s his work turned away from International Modernism and began to show tentative references to a wider range of architectural expression. Best known for the enormous Eaton Centre, Toronto (1969–81—with Bregman and Hamann), essentially a gigantic variation on the C19 shopping arcade expanded on several levels, he also designed Ontario Place, Toronto (1968–71), and Canada Place, Vancouver (1983–6—with others). His work includes many building types. Among his other buildings the Mackenzie Health Sciences Centre, University of Alberta, Edmonton (1980–2), Queens Quay Terminal Warehouse, Toronto (1981–3), and the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, West Palm Beach, FL (1985), may be mentioned. He published Healing the Hospital (1974) and Multi-Use Architecture in the Urban Context (1984).

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.
