Wren's Royal Hospital Chelsea was the subject of a Masters of Building feature by Dan Cruickshank (AJ 26.11.98), who has now enlarged his article into a well-illustrated book, The Royal Hospital Chelsea: The Place and the People (Third Millennium Publishing, £35). It follows the growth of the building and the lives of its inhabitants from Wren's time to today, paying due attention to the distinguished work there of John Soane, whose stables are pictured left.
