Garrison Church of St Martin, Delhi, India (built 1928-30)
Designed by Arthur Shoosmith, the British Church was described by critic Gavin Smith as “one of the great buildings of the 20th century”. It is constructed of over 3 million bricks and the lack of windows, rather a handful of deep set openings, add to the monumental composition of the building.
