line in a spiralling shape, running from Hammersmith in the west to Edgware Road and then looping around central London back to Edgware Road. The railway is below ground in the central section and on the loop east of Paddington.

Edwin Lutyens
Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens, OM, KCIE, PRA, FRIBA (/ˈlʌtjənz/; LUT-yənz; 29 March 1869 – 1 January 1944) was an English architect known for imaginatively adapting traditional architectural styles to the requirements of his era. He designed many English country houses, war memorials and public buildings. In his biography, the writer Christopher Hussey wrote, "In his lifetime (Lutyens) was widely held to be our greatest architect since Wren if not, as many maintained, his superior".[2] The architectural historian Gavin Stamp described him as "surely the greatest British architect of the twentieth (or of any other) century".[3] Lutyens played an instrumental role in designing and building New Delhi, which would later on serve as the seat of the Government of India.[4] In recognition of his contribution, New Delhi
