Description

 

 

Sir Edwin Lutyens (1869-1944) was one of the great architects of the twentieth century.

His Edwardian country houses, surrounded by rhapsodic gardens, beguiled clients with their romance and wit.

After 1918, the war memorials that he created symbolised a grieving nation’s sense of loss.

In the new capital of the British Raj, New Delhi, the Viceroy’s House or Rashtrapati Bhavan had a footprint bigger than Versailles.

His unfinished Liverpool Cathedral would have rivalled St Peter’s in Rome.

Intensely shy, Lutyens hid his personality behind puns and jokes – and yet he could be called ‘part mystic’, a reference to an inner profundity.
