Brighton, United Kingdom | 2010
Begun in 1787 and completed in 1823, the Royal Pavilion was the seaside residence for monarchs George IV, William IV, and Victoria. During World War I, it was converted into a military hospital for Indian soldiers wounded while fighting for the British Empire. Separate medical facilities within the structure were provided to accommodate the differing caste and religious sensibilities of Hindu, Sikh, and Muslim soldiers. Today the building and grounds serve as a museum.
