 introduction to the Pugin Society
Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (1812—1852), son of the French émigré Augustus Charles Pugin, architectural draughtsman and topographical watercolourist, is arguably the greatest British architect, designer and writer of the nineteenth century.
Pugin was responsible for an enormous quantity of buildings, and also for countless beautiful designs for tiles, metalwork, furniture, wallpaper, stained glass and ceramics.
Pugin's beliefs and ideas have implications beyond his own immediate preferences, and so for many reasons he was, and is, therefore, hugely influential, both on other architects and designers of the Gothic Revival throughout the Victorian era and also on many subsequent architects, theorists and writers.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin
Pugin was somewhat below the middle stature and rather thick-set, with long dark hair and grey eyes that seemed to take in everything.
Westminster had been destroyed by fire in 1834; plans for the new buildings were invited, and those of Charles Barry (afterwards Sir Charles) received the approval of the Commissioners from among some eighty-four competitors.
At the outset Barry called in Pugin (1836-37) to complete his half-drawn plans, and he further entrusted to him the working plans and the entire decoration (1837-52).

AUGUSTUS WELBY NORTHMORE PUGIN (1812-1852), English architect, son of Augustus Charles Pugin (1762-1832), a Frenchman by birth who settled in London as an architectural draughtsman and had several pupils who rose to fame, was born in Store Street, Bedford Square, on the 1st of March 1812.
He himself used to say that the only church he had ever executed with unalloyed satisfaction was the one at Ramsgate, which he not only designed but paid for.
The cathedral of Killarney and the chapel of the Benedictine monastery of Douai were perhaps the ecclesiastic buildings which were carried out with least deviation from Pugin's original conception.

 Print Article: Tasmania's Gothic paradise rediscovered
Multi-talented 19th century British designer Augustus Pugin had a vision: in the wretched penal settlement of Van Diemen's Land he would create a Gothic paradise, rekindling images from the "kinder" Middle Ages.
Pugin never came to Australia, but he left a vast and unsuspected antipodean - particularly Tasmanian - legacy now revealed in a new exhibition.
The faithful of Van Diemen's Land would be baptised in a Pugin font and attend mass celebrated in a Pugin-designed church by a priest wearing Pugin vestments and using Pugin altar vessels.

Augustus Pugin designed the house for himself and his family to live in at a time when the formality of the Regency terrace was the architectural norm.
The house remained in the ownership of the Pugin family until the death of Augustus Pugin’s youngest son Cuthbert in 1928, after which its contents were dispersed and it became a school run by the monks of St Augustine’s monastery next door.

 Pugin Church in Oatlands, TAS
Architect Augustus Pugin is most famous for the design of London's Houses of Parliament, but until recently, many experts thought that his work was in the UK only.
Pugin designed the objects for free, and then they were manufactured in England, and everything that was needed -- designs for churches, baptismal fonts, church metalwork, vestments, stained-glass windows, stone crosses, tombstones -- everything came out on the ship with Bishop Willson.
One of the principles that Pugin enunciated in his writings, which were his most influential channel of communication -- far more than his buildings -- was that every object, even the smallest, should have a meaning and serve a purpose.

Pugin's first home was near Salisbury, but even this location was not a preferred one; for he had originally wished to settle near Christchurch.
Pugin was a celebrated proponent of all things Gothic and in the 1830s and 40s penned several very influential books on the subject of Gothic design and more particularly its application to architecture.
Pugin consequently cherished the idea of obtaining a piece of ground and building a house, in which he might indulge his own taste and show the manner in which a domestic residence should be arranged fitted up in strict accordance with mediaeval examples.

In the second half of this study, the author argues that Pugin’s vision of liturgical architecture clashed violently with the ideas of a particular group of converts to the Roman Catholic Church, led by John Henry Newman.
“Pugin was a great architect and designer, and so has principally been of concern to artists and architectural historians, who may, like Kenneth Clark, have noted the pungency of his writings, but have done little to probe the non-architectural sources of his inspiration.
Pugin is a giant in the history of architecture, and his contribution to the nineteenth century was enormous.
