A.W.N. Pugin
March 1

Born on this day in 1812, A.W.N. Pugin is perhaps best known for his work with Charles Barry on the Houses of Parliament in London. Designed in 1835, the Houses were constructed over a thirty year period in an English Late Gothic style. As with fellow Englishmen William Morris, Pugin sought inspiration from the moral and spiritual purity of religious architecture in the Middle Ages.
