Edwin Landseer Lutyens
Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens, (1869-1944) architect, designed Hampton Court Bridge (with W.P. Robinson), which was built in 1930 and opened in 1933 by Edward VIII, then Prince of Wales. At this point in his career, Lutyens had achieved national and international recognition through his work in Imperial India. Commissioned to design the central buildings in New Delhi soon after the end of the First World War, his most recognisable achievement as imperial architect is the Viceregal Lodge, now the Rashtrapati Bhavan. Closer to home his design of the Cenotaph in Whitehall has become one of the most recognisable symbols of London. His design of the Broughton Lodge at Runnymede in 1929 further underlines his connection and importance to the local area.
