SITE

SITE (Sculpture in the Environment). American multi-disciplinary architectural group launched in 1969 by James Wines, and best known for the Best Products chain of stores, including the Peel Project, Richmond, VA (1971–2), the Indeterminate Façade, Houston, TA (1974–5), the Tilt Showroom, Towson, MD (1976–8), and the Inside/Outside Showroom, Milwaukee, WI (1984). In these, ‘broken’ walls, whole fronts lifted as though they are cardboard, and other curious elements have made their buildings notorious. Other works include Avenue 5, Expo 92, Seville, Spain (1992), and several projects in which ecology was well to the fore.

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.
