Leading English architect, designer, and design theorist Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (1812 –1852), is now best remembered for his work in the Gothic Revival style, particularly churches and the Palace of Westminster in London. Across Australia, from outback towns with tiny churches to our very greatest cathedrals, we have buildings directly influenced by Pugin’s ideas. In this lecture Hazell will look at not only the buildings, but also the decorative treatment of interiors and associated ecclesiastical objects.

This lecture coincides with the bicentenary of the birth of A W N Pugin (1812-1852), and Charles Dickens.

Thomas Hazell, Deputy Chair of The WR Johnston Trust, has given numerous talks on the life and work of AWN Pugin, and his disciple, William Wardell, especially in relation to his influence in Australia. He is a Consultant, Heritage Church Restorations and Patron of various appeals.
