JANUARY 2015 CLUE: An architect famous for designing country houses devoted a number of years to a palatial residence commended for its combination of western and eastern motifs.
ANSWER: Putting together the January issue of RECORD, we worried that our selection was too easy! But it wasn't: because of a production error, the wrong photo accompanies the clue. The image shows Sir Herbert Baker's North Block of the Secretariat for New Delhi (1931); the clue refers to Sir Edwin Lutyens's Viceroy's House, now Rashtrapati Bhavan (1931), nearby. If you guessed either or both architects who collaborated on this civic center, you were eligible to win the prize.
