Dr John Martin Robinson

“Aston Webb’s great achievement was to design a traditional triumphal arch which also contains a large office / residential building.   The grandeur of the architecture is matched by the ingenious plan which turns the axis from busy Trafalgar Square to the ceremonial tranquillity of the Royal Park and the approach to the palace.”
