Augustus Northmore Welby Pugin (1812-1852)

Architect and designer born in London. He worked with Charles Barry on the designs for the Houses of Parliament in London, and designed numerous influential churches and houses. Together with his publications on medieval architecture and design he was a principal motivating force behind the Victorian Gothic Revival. He worked closely with John Hardman who produced metalwork and stained glass to his design, John Crace (painting and soft furnishing), Herbert Minton (ceramic tiles) and George Myers ('Pugin's builder').
