The Lutyens Traveling Fellowship 2023

Sponsored by The Lutyens Trust America

The Lutyens Trust America congratulates William Clarke as the winner of the Lutyens Traveling Fellowship 2023.

 William Clarke is an architect specializing in residential design in Atlanta. Born in Memphis, Tennessee, he attended the University of Notre Dame for architecture. After graduating, he moved to New York City where he worked for AD100 firms such as John B Murray Architects and Roman & Williams. It was his first job in NYC that ignited his love of Edwin Lutyens, thanks to his very British boss, Tim Hook of Moran Hook Architecture. During the height of the pandemic William moved to Atlanta to work for McAlpine Tankersley Architecture, where he works today.

Congratulations again to William Clarke. His winning proposal was titled: “In Service of Lutyens: A Study of Kitchens and Service Rooms.” We look forward to sharing the results of his travel and research.

The Lutyens Traveling Fellowship was founded to promote the appreciation and knowledge of the work of Sir Edwin Lutyens by funding a period of individual travel and research on his work and legacy. The Lutyens Traveling Fellowship provides a $7,000 award for emerging professionals in architecture, art history, interior design, historic preservation, or the decorative arts.

We would like to thank all the applicants that applied for this first annual fellowship. The level of interest was incredible and the quality of the submissions most impressive. 

The jurors had a difficult task to narrow down the applicants to three highly qualified finalists:  

Clay Gruber & Luis Jasso, Lucas Marti Guitera, and William Clarke.

What We Do

The Lutyens Trust America is an organization formed to promote the appreciation and knowledge of the work of the British architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens OM (1869-1944). Considered one of the most remarkable architects in British history, Sir Edwin Lutyens left behind a rare architectural legacy that included a rich variety of form and style. Among his over 800 commissions, Lutyens designed many beautiful country houses, public buildings, bridges, and war memorials in Britain. His prolific work abroad includes designs such as Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi, Thiepval Arch on the Somme in France, and the British Embassy in Washington, D.C., as well as many other distinguished buildings.

The wit and finesse of Lutyens’s architecture continues to be a source of inspiration and delight to architects and those interested in architecture, making his built work, memorials, drawings, and letters worthy of preservation and study, not just in Britain but also in the United States. As an educational organization, The Lutyens Trust America focuses on enhancing appreciation of, and on providing opportunities for the study and conservation of Sir Edwin Lutyens’s work. Events for The Lutyens Trust America will include tours of Lutyens-related sites, lectures, and the support of ongoing preservation efforts related to Lutyens’s legacy of architectural design. One of our aims is to inspire new generations of architects and designers to revisit Lutyens’s work as an inspiration for their own creative paths.
