Picture of Deanery Garden[edit]

  • Firstly it's not called Deanery Garden House - it was originally simply "Deanery Garden" and is now known as "the Deanery".
  • The picture is a "charcoaled" version of an early copyright Country Life picture. (There is now a window to the right of the large chimney.) If I knew how I'd upload a CC picture of my own.

Social Housing in Westminster[edit]

No mention of this on the page: —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:01, 22 May 2009 (UTC)


This is of poor quality and a better representation of him would be preferable.--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 04:48, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Brickyard Office[edit]

If of any interest I've just uploaded Lutoffice8Jl6-3786.jpg to the Commons and have included an image of the plaque on the building recording Lutyen's interest.I particularly like the history behind this image as it shows Lutyen's in a different light.

The Lead[edit]

Looking at this article, which needs a great deal of work, I'm particularly struck by the concluding comment on his racism, which ends the lead. Whilst he certainly held racist views, they were commonly held by many (most?) people of his class and of his time. Are his views on race really amongst the most important facts of note about the greatest English architect of the twentieth century? KJP1 (talk) 10:41, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

I agree it doesn't belong in the lead and should certainly be rephrased from a direct accusation, for WP:NPOV. It should probably go lower down in a wider description of his reaction to India and Indian architecture, or in the context of his difficulties with his much more liberal wife, who was infatuated with an Indian, Krishnamurti for years. Certainly a lot of work for someone... - Aegoceras (talk) 11:36, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
It would indeed sit much more suitably in a section on his work at Delhi and I shall move it. The wider issues with the article will have to wait the attentions of other, or until I recover sufficient wiki-enthusiasm. Are you a Bristolian? The article on the splendid Wills Hall is quite nice.

Yes. No Lutyens works around here though! -Aegoceras (talk) 22:59, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Page number required for ref 1 - from Stamp, Gavin (2006). The Memorial to the Missing of the Somme[edit]

Does anyone have access to Stamp, Gavin (2006). The Memorial to the Missing of the Somme. It's our no.1 reference and an important assertion; it would be best if we could specify the page number (and at the same time have someone check that Stamp did indeed write such a thing). thanks --Tagishsimon (talk) 13:21, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

p=10, "the greatest British architect of the twentieth (or of any other) century." I'll put a page reference in. KJP1 (talk) 16:42, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
