""Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens, OM, KCIE, PRA, FRIBA (29 March 1869 ? 1 January 1944) was an English architect known for imaginatively adapting traditional architectural styles to the requirements of his era. He designed many English country houses, war memorials and public buildings. In his biography, the writer Christopher Hussey wrote, "In his lifetime (Lutyens) was widely held to be our greatest architect since Wren if not, as many maintained, his superior." The architectural historian Gavin Stamp described him as "surely the greatest British architect of the twentieth (or of any other) century." (Wikipedia)
