Architects of Ulster: Young & MacKenzie - A Transformational Provincial Practice 1850-1960
This richly illustrated book, containing over 600 colour photographs and many archival images, presents the work of the architectural and civil engineering firm of Young and Mackenzie.
The practice was established in the early 1850s and survived for three family generations, quickly becoming pivotal to the transformation of Ulster’s built environment. Young & Mackenzie was especially significant in the architectural development of Belfast during the Victorian and Edwardian periods but also into the twentieth century.
This landmark new book tells the story of this powerhouse of provincial architecture, designers of key Belfast structures such as the Ocean Buildings and Scottish Provident Buildings as well as Robinson & Cleaver’s and Anderson & McAuley’s department stores along with numerous other buildings which make up much of Ulster’s architectural fabric. A comprehensive gazetteer of the firm’s output is also included.
