Google UK's today celebrates Sir George Gilbert Scott's birthday, who was born on July 13th with a special doodle that depicts St. Pancras Railway Station in London designed by Sir Scott.
"Sir George Gilbert Scott (13 July 1811 - 27 March 1878) was an English architect of the Victorian Age, chiefly associated with the design, building and renovation of churches, cathedrals and workhouses. He was one of the most prolific architects that Great Britain has produced, over 800 buildings being designed or altered by him - projects that included schools, churches, cathedrals, asylums, workhouses, and more."
"Scott was the architect of many iconic buildings, including the Midland Grand Hotel at St Pancras Station, the Albert Memorial, and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, all in London, and St Mary's Cathedral, Edinburgh," Wikipedia.
Among his other accomplishments, Scott was awarded a Royal Gold Medal by the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1859 and was knighted in 1872. Scott died in 1878 and is buried in Westminster Abbey, where today he will be commemorated with a special service, which is a rare honor for an architect, the Wall Street Journal noted.
