HOARE & WHEELER #
- Born: - Died: -
London-based architectural partnership of Edward Barclay Hoare (1872-1943) and Montague Wheeler (1874-1937), for whom see A. Stuart Gray, Edwardian Architecture (2nd edition, 1988), 209, and Directory of British Architects 1834-1914 (RIBA 2001), I, 924, and II, 966. Around the time of the outbreak of the World War I, Hoare & Wheeler designed a vast transatlantic railway terminus to be erected on a rocky promontory in Blacksod Bay, Co. Mayo. An interior perspective view was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1915(1) and published, together with an exterior perspective, front elevation and plan, in the Building News,(2) but the ambitious scheme was never carried out.
