Windows by Edward Buckton Lamb - Artist

Edward Buckton Lamb (1806-1869) was a British architect who exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1824. Lamb was labelled a 'Rogue Gothic Revivalist', and his designs were roundly criticised for breaking with convention, especially by The Ecclesiologist. More recently Nikolaus Pevsner called him "the most original though certainly not the most accomplished architect of his day". He was born in London, his father James Lamb being a government official. He was articled to Lewis Nockalls Cottingham. He was selected to design the chapel for the Brompton Hospital, then being built to the designs of Frederick John Francis, and was retained to complete the main building, in collaboration with Francis. He contributed to Loudon's Encyclopaedia (1833), published studies on Gothic Ornament (1830), Ancient Domestic Architecture (1846) with text by William Henry Leeds, and contributed regularly to the Architectural Magazine (1834-8). Notable work in Buckinhamshire, Disraeli Monument, Hughenden, (1862) and alterations to Hughenden Manor for Benjamin Disraeli.
