Ribart de Chamoust

Ribart de Chamoust (fl. 1776–83). French architectural writer, author of L'Ordre François trouvé dans la Nature (1776), which contains a curious French Order consisting of three columns set at the points of an equilateral triangular plan (∴) with creepers trailing in spirals around the shafts, capitals similar to those of the Corinthian Order, and a pedestal with three volutes resembling a compressed and inverted Ionic capital. The analogy with a tree (capital = foliage, shaft = trunk, and pedestal with volutes = roots visible above ground) suggests an extension of ideas from Laugier. Ribart's first names may have been Charles-François, who was author of some works on finance, or (more likely) François-Joseph, who was probably the author of Architecture Singulière (1758) and Lettre de M. Ribart (c.1770): this latter Ribart was an ‘Ingénieur’.

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.
