Music is GREAT Britain. Brit award winner and GREAT ambassador Jessie J tells us what makes British music festivals so unique.
We are showcasing photos from The Architecture of Diplomacy: The British Ambassador’s Residence in Washington, by Anthony Seldon and Daniel Collings. The residence, completed in 1930 by Sir Edwin Luytens, has born witness to historic state visits and prized events throughout its tenure. Lutyens’ circular staircase, seen here, creates a dazzling effect that looks down to Nigel Hall’s sculpture Intension Extension (1995), which echoes the geometric floor pattern at the staircase’s base.
