Downing is the work of two well known, rather than famous, architects. The first phase seen here in the left hand Greek style building, and the masterplan here were by William Wilkins, best known for the National Gallery. Wilkins worked in both Classical and Gothic styles and in my opinion his masterpiece is the Porters Lodge and Screen at Kings. He thought Corpus Christi Cambridge his favourite work and he is buried there. The bulk of the buildings shown here are a later phase by Herbert Baker who followed Wilkins masterplan to a degree. Baker is best known for his Imperial buildings in South Africa and India. He had a famous row with Lutyens over the approach to the Viceroys House in New Delhi, in which Bakers view prevailed. Lutyens quipped, I have met my Bakerloo.
