Lutyens In The City Of London - Friday 19th February 2016
6.30pm till 8.00pm
A talk by Dr Mervyn Miller for the Lutyens Trust in conjunction with The 20th Century Society at the Alan Baxter Gallery, 70, Cowcross Street, EC1M 6EL
While Sir Edward Lutyens is best remembered for his country houses, The Cenotaph and New Delhi, he designed major buildings in the City of London: Brittanic House, the former Midland Bank HQ and the former Reuter's Building. The Mercantile Merorial on Tower Hill is one of his finest War Memorials. His knowledge of the City and its buildings, particularly the Wren Churches and St Paul's Cathedral reflected in buildings as diverse as The British School in Rome and the Viceroy's Study in New Delhi. After his death his ashes were interred in the crypt of St Paul's Cathedral.
Mervyn Miller originally gave a version of this lecture at the RIBA in 2013 at which time he was the Master of the Worshipful Company of Architects.
Members of 20th Century Society and the Lutyens Trust £8.00, Non Members £10.00, Students £5.00. To include a glass of wine.
