Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Godwin FRS (1815 - 27 January 1888) was an influential architect, journalist, and editor of The Builder magazine. He was one of nine children of the architect George Godwin senior (1780-1863) and trained at his father's architectural practice in Kensington where he set up in business with his brother Henry Godwin (1831-1917). Encouraged by his friend the antiquary John Britton, he pursued an interest in architectural history and wrote several volumes on the Churches of London (1838), masons' marks and gothic style. He was also interested in new materials and wrote on the use of concrete (1836). He soon joined the Institute of British Architects, the Society of Antiquaries, and became a Fellow of the Royal Society.show more
