Zucker, Paul

Zucker, Paul (1888–1971). German-born American architect, architectural historian, and theorist. In the 1920s he was involved with Arbeitsrat für Kunst and the Novembergruppe, and taught at various institutions, including the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Kunst (State College for Fine Art), Berlin. Among his many works were the shops for the Etam (1921–2) and Festa (1928) chains, the Bankhaus Lewinsky, Taubenstrasse (1924), the Henkel House, Hagenstrasse, Grünewald (1927), and the Posnansky Studio-cum-Boathouse, Kleiner Wannsee (1930), all in Berlin, but his best works were probably the villas in the western suburbs of that city. Zucker's copious writings include Town and Square: From the Agora to the Village Green (1959) and numerous contributions on architectural theory in various journals, mostly dealing with aspects of space in the urban context.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most 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.
