Pace, George Gaze

George Gaze Pace (1915-75) was the most significant and prolific British ecclesiastical architect of his generation, eventually caring for nine cathedrals and many hundreds of churches. He designed several dramatic and influential modernist churches, as well as huge quantities of church furnishings, plate, decoration, glazing and even vestments. He had a profound respect for the role of traditional craft skills and building techniques in a contemporary context which places him in the Arts and Crafts succession.
