Vatican newspaper pays tribute to architect Pugin
Catholic World News - March 05, 2012
L’Osservatore Romano has paid tribute to the English architect Augustus Pugin on the two hundredth anniversary of his birth.
A convert to Catholicism, Pugin was a key figure in the Gothic revival and designed dozens of churches in England, Ireland, and Australia. He also drew the design for the Big Ben clock tower.
