Royal Pavilion, Brighton

The opulent dream world of the Royal Pavilion was only possible with the (artfully concealed) use of modern technology. Iron was used for the structural work and even the slender columns disguised as palm trees, while gas was used for the huge chandeliers and an early form of cement (Hamlin's Mastic)for the outer skin of the domes.
