Gothic Revival Worldwide
A. W. N. Pugin's Global Influence
The influence of the Gothic Revival architect A. W. N. Pugin as a designer not only spread fast globally but also played a leading part in the transformation of material culture from the mid-nineteenth century onward. Pugin's work has been comprehensively reevaluated over the last decade. In this volume sixteen leading scholars discuss Pugin’s direct influence on church architecture and furnishing. Beautifully illustrated with a large selection of new photography, Gothic Revival Worldwide reveals how Pugin’s ideas played a profound role in the changing face of material reform in church architecture as an expression of the evolving identity of churches around the world from North America to Mongolia and the South Pacific.
