The Minister of Public Building and Works decided that the picturesque but somewhat dilapidated Cavalry Barracks at Knightsbridge, which have stood guard on Hyde Park for close on a hundred years, needed to be completely rebuilt.

Other articles in this issue include: The nature of wind; Wind pressures on buildings; Vibration, damping and dynamic loads; Wind tunnel tests - their uses and limitations; Wind on tall buildings - design procedure.
