Molinos, Jacques

Molinos, Jacques (1743–1831). French architect. He collaborated with J. -G. Legrand on a number of projects, including the erection of the huge timber dome over the central court of the Halle au Blé, Paris, in 1782–3 (destroyed 1803), which was regarded as very progressive at the time. Also with Legrand he designed the Julien Garden at Épinay, and the Théâtre Feydeau which influenced F. Gilly. On his own he built the Château of Puisieux, near Villers-Cotterets (1780–5). As Architect and Inspector of Civil Buildings for the Department of the Seine he produced some experimental but unrealized Neo-Classical designs for cemeteries and crematoria, including the original proposals for Montmartre Cemetery, Paris (1799). His son, Auguste-Isidore Molinos (1795–1850) became an architect in Paris, designing the Churches of St-Jean, Neuilly (1827–31), and Ste-Marie, Batignolles (1828–9).

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.
