    Expert Review :

    Designated by King George V to replace Calcutta as capital of British India, New Delhi was constructed between 1912 and 1929 under the steady eye of architect Sir Edward Lutyens who sought to bring to this British colony a sense of classicism, order, and institutional beauty. Featuring more than 300 colour and black-and-white illustrations, plans and photographs, this volume presents a comprehensive examination of how this city was envisioned, planned and constructed. From the massive war memorial arch to the spacious gardens and the gloriously imposing Viceroy’s House, the evidence of Lutyen’s architectural genius is everywhere throughout New Delhi. Architectural historian Andreas Volwahsen discusses the importance of Lutyen’s work and provides an account of the making of a city: the contentious debates and cultural considerations, the inspiration and the painstaking construction, and finally the ways in which New Delhi has evolved into a modern city.
