Edwin Lutyens was one of Britain's greatest architects, known for the imaginative adaptations of traditional design in his numerous country houses, as well as the instrumental role he played in designing and building much of New Delhi. Presenting a stunning collection of his architectural designs spanning the many phases of his acclaimed career, this beautifully produced study includes examples of the celebrated architect's early Arts-and-Crafts houses, Surrey-vernacular style, and carefully composed classical houses. Leading architectural authority Gavin Stamp presents his selection of Lutyens' houses in chronological order -with the exception of the Viceroy's House - by the date of their design. Featuring jaw-dropping photography from the unique archives of Country Life magazine, this beautiful book covers of all phases of Lutyens' career and boasts a number of rare images. The vast majority of photographs within the book are contemporaneous to the buildings' design - showing the houses as their architect intended they should look: mellow and yet monumental, fitting into the soft English landscape and enhanced by their luxuriant gardens. Covering everything from Crooksbury and Sullingstead to Gledstone Hall and Middleton park, Edwin Lutyens' Country Houses is the leading text on this architect of rare genius and humanity.
