George Gilbert Scott (1811 - 1878), knighted by Queen Victoria as Sir Gilbert Scott after the completion of the Albert Memorial in 1872, was the most famous architect of his day. Inspired in particular by the writings of the great Pugin, he became a leading advocate of the Gothic Revival. His busy office was responsible for over 800 jobs in his lifetime. These included hundreds of new churches, the restoration of numerous ancient churches and almost every Medeival cathedral in England, schools and university buildings in Oxford, Cambridge, Glasgow and Bombay, workhouses, libraries, hospitals, civic buildings and many memorials. In London his principal works were the (non-Gothic) Foreign Office and the spectacular Midland Grand Hotel at St Pancras Station.

Gavin Stamp is an architectural historian and writer whose books include The Memorial to the Missing of the Somme, Lost Victorian Britain and studies of the work of Edwin Lutyens, Alexander 'Greek' Thomson and the Gilbert Scott dynasty. His illustrated biography of Sir Gilbert Scott, Gothic for the Steam Age, will be published later this year.
