Members of The Lutyens Trust America were invited to the British Embassy in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sir Edwin Lutyens. The Embassy is the only major built work in the United States designed by Lutyens. An afternoon tour of the embassy building and grounds was followed with a very special dinner in the Residence. Everyone at the dinner was presented with a commemorative program and a model of the Cenotaph, as this year also marks the 100th anniversary of this design.
