Abstract:
During a forty-five year period the architecture of Henry Edmund Goodridge progressed from Regency Greek Revival, through late Georgian Picturesque towards Victorian Eclecticism. The aim of this study is to show how through such development Goodridge produced a style that fused historical architectural forms with modern advances in technology, in order to create an architecture that was appropriate to the age he inhabited. This work will investigate Goodridge’s built and unrealised projects at each stage of his career, creating a full list of his works, including newly discovered material (Appendix I), and discuss what they illustrate about his architectural aims and ideas. Such analysis will reveal that, rather than the malleable local architect of common perception, Goodridge was a talented and innovative professional who was continuously at the forefront of national developments in aesthetics and architectural style.
