The Britons who built the Modern World, a new BBC series, inspired this display of watercolours, models, drawings and photos of international buildings by British architects, from an Art Deco church in Delhi to Parliament House in Melbourne. View the Arts & Crafts house by Charles Voysey built for an English doctor in the heart of the Egyptian desert in 1905, and a 1917 bust, pictured, of Sir Edwin Lutyens, whose drawing of an unbuilt home on the Hudson River, commissioned by a US railway magnate, is featured. The second part of the show brings the story up to date and opens on February 10, at the RIBA, 66 Portland Place, W1.
