Map of Lutyens' Delhi (1913)
Mirza Firuz Shah

Edwin Lutyens' official master plan for the creation of New Delhi.
Edwin Lutyens' official master plan for the creation of New Delhi:
Lutyenss plan literally projects British imperial power over the existing Indian landscape. A profoundly powerful image, it shows in bold red lines the network of broad boulevards, running between grand edifices literally overwhelming all aspects of the countryside, which is presented in pale blue. Indeed, the new imperial city literally bulldozed ancient villages and ploughed over farms that had been worked for centuries. At the same time, it strategically preserved an integrated import Mughal monuments, such as Humayun’s Tomb, into the new city, symbolically legitimising British power by showing it as the rightful successor to the Mughal imperial mantle.
