Zuazo Ugalde, Secundino

Zuazo Ugalde, Secundino (1887–1970). Spanish architect and town-planner. His work was stylistically eclectic, and included several post-offices (e.g. Bilbao, Madrid, and Santander—1924–7), where Viennese influences may be detected, perhaps even more strongly expressed in the Casa de las Flores housing, Madrid (1930–2). A distinguished town-planner, much influenced by his studies of the organization and geometry of El Escorial, near Madrid, he reorganized the inner-city of Bilbao, prepared plans for Greater Seville, and provided designs for the new stretch of the Avenue Castellana, Madrid (opened 1933), on which new Government Ministries were to be erected (1930–7). However, Zuazo's vision of a ‘hymn to the soberness and nobility’ of stone-built architecture was not shared by the architects of the realized buildings which were in a bleak stripped-Classical style reminiscent of the 1930s' official architecture in Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany. A competent Classicist himself, he designed the Palacio de la Música (1924–6), and the Casa Domingo Ortega (1946–7), both in Madrid, in that 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.
