Ellwood, Craig

Ellwood, Craig (1922–92). American architect. He made his name with the Case Study house, 1811 Bel Air Road (1951–2), followed by two more Case Study houses at 9554 Hidden Valley Road (1954) and 1129 Mirdero Road (1955), all in Los Angeles, CA. An exponent of the rectangular grid based on a steel-framed structure, he developed the parti of Mies van der Rohe with his Smith House, Crest-wood Hills (1957–8), and his Rosen House, 910 Oakmount Drive, Brentwood (1961–3), both in Los Angeles. In his later buildings he exploited exposed steel trusses, notably with the Art Center School, Pasadena, CA (1970–5), which is essentially a bridge spanning between two hills.

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:
