George Edmund Street

Street, George Edmund, 1824–81, English architect. One of the foremost champions of the Gothic revival, he did much church work, including St. Mary Magdalene, Paddington, London; St. James the Less, Westminster; St. Paul's American Church in Rome; and restorations to the Bristol Cathedral and to Christchurch, Dublin. His most notable work, the Royal Courts of Justice (1874–82) in London, was the last great attempt to apply the Gothic revival to a public building.
