What we do

Britain’s architectural heritage is one of the nation’s greatest assets and Sir Edwin Lutyens OM gave us some of our most beautiful country houses, public buildings and war memorials. Lutyens was also prolific abroad and designed Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi, Thiepval Arch on the Somme, the British Embassy in Washington DC and many other distinguished buildings.

The Lutyens Trust is a charity dedicated to preserving and promoting the spirit and substance of Lutyens heritage. Our intervention and influence has helped protect many Lutyens buildings from harm. We are developing the first comprehensive on-line Gazetteer of Lutyens works which will soon be made accessible to the public. We arrange for our members tours of private houses as well as an annual study week at our own Lutyens house, Goddards in Surrey.  There is much to be done so please consider joining us to support this ongoing work.

The Great Lutyens: Forty Years On

On 18th November 1981 Lutyens: The Work of the English Architect opened at The Hayward Gallery, and was to run for 3 months. It was the work of a team that would go on to found The Lutyens Trust in 1984-5. The original exhibition committee was chaired by Colin Amery and consisted of Jane Brown, Sir Hugh Casson, Roderick Gradidge, Piers Gough, Peter Inskip, Mary Lutyens, Margaret Richardson, Gavin Stamp, Nicholas Taylor and David Watkin. Now 40 years on The Lutyens Trust brings you two evenings to reflect on what became a landmark exhibition that made great leaps toward rekindling the flame of appreciation for the great man’s work.
