The stylistic shift during the nineteenth century which saw the Classical tradition challenged by a renewed interest in Gothic was one of the centurys most profound architectural developments. It was the result of a diverse range of influences, but ultimately the Gothic Revival was the product of a series of groundbreaking architects, each of which added his own particular contribution to the movement. The book identifies six of these individuals whose careers span the late-Georgian and Victorian periods, and who made a major contribution to the foundations, development or refinement of the style. They are: John Carter, Thomas Rickman, Thomas Taylor, R.C. Carpenter, G.E. Street, J.T. Micklethwaite. An introduction is followed by a substantial, illustrated chapter on each of these men which examines their lives, training, philosophy and buildings as a means of establishing their role in the revival.
