Street, George Edmund

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.
