Rashtrapati Bhavan, New Delhi


Architect: Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens


Formerly known as "The Viceroy's House", the Presidential Palace was the masterpiece of the new designs by Lutyens, Baker and other architects for New Delhi in India.


The building, which is at heart simply a very, very, large English Country House, is built over four floors and 340 rooms, with a floor area of 200,000 square feet (19,000 m2).

It was built using 1 billion bricks and 3,000,000 cu ft (85,000 m3) of stone with little steel.


The design, though definitely in the Classical European tradition, incorporates several Indo-Saracenic motifs, such as chujjas and chuttris.

It could easily have been a poor pastiche, but Lutyens' genius transformed these disparate elements into a wonderful piece of architecture. It looks both to its Indian and European roots, while also having a foot in the past as well as the future.


It remains one of the great buildings of the 20th Century.
