YOU MUST FIND YOUR OWN EXAMPLES OF RICHARD UPJOHN'S WORKS.
The architect, Richard Upjohn, was born in 1803 at Shaftesbury, England, and died in 1878 at Garrison, New York.
His own early work included numerous villas in the neo-classical style. In 1837 he finished St. John’s Church in Bangor, Maine, the first of many commissions in that state. In August, 1839, Upjohn moved to New York City and was retained as architect for New York’s Trinity Church, consecrated in 1846. This was his first notable success and led to many commissions for neo-Romanesque and neo-Gothic churches, and Italian renaissance office buildings.
Generally regarded as the "father" of the Gothic Revival movement in America, Richard Upjohn played an increasing role in shaping the direction of American architecture in the latter half of the 19th century. He established the American Institute of Architects in 1857, serving as its first president. Although noted for his ecclesiastical commissions, including the New York churches of the Ascension and the Holy Communion, Trinity chapel, and St. Thomas's, and, in Brooklyn, Christ and Grace churches and the Church of the Pilgrims, Upjohn also developed plans for a number of civic buildings, such as the Trinity building and the Corn Exchange bank, as well as designs for over 90 residences throughout the country.
