Greene and Greene
Greene and Greene, architectural firm working in the American arts and crafts style, formed by the brothers Charles Sumner Greene, 1868–1957, and Henry Mather Greene, 1870–1954, both b. Brighton (now part of Cincinnati), Ohio. Both attended Washington Univ.'s Manual Training High School and the Massachussets Institute of Technology's school of architecture (1886–88). After an apprenticeship in Boston, they joined their parents (1893), who had moved to Pasadena, Calif., and soon established (1894) their own firm. The bungalow, the building style for which they became famous, was particularly well suited to the landscape, lifestyle, and climate of S California. Rather informal in feeling, these residences exhibit the handmade detailing and respect for materials characteristic of arts and crafts works. The brothers typically used wood members, overhanging roofs and eaves, sleeping porches, and spacious interiors. Their masterpiece is the David B. Gamble house (1908), Pasadena, in which landscaping, exterior features, and interior decoration are fully integrated. Other important buildings include the Pratt House in Ojai and the Thorsen House in Berkeley. Greene and Greene's work was influential in the design of American domestic architecture.

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:
Modern Language Association
The Chicago Manual of Style

- 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.
