The Great Court at the British Museum

Be the first to review this product

The latest addition to Scalas prestigious art spaces series is one of the most prestigious buildings of all: The Great Court at the British Museum. The two-acre square, enclosed by a spectacular glass roof, transforms the Museums inner courtyard into the largest covered public square in Europe, with the world-famous Reading Room at its centre. Designed by Foster and Partners, the £100 million project transformed one of the lost spaces of London, hidden from public view since 1857. While the Louvre created a new circulation space beneath its massive courtyard, topped by I.M. Peis pyramid, the British Museum covered its rather smaller court to create a magnificent central space leading directly into the galleries on each side. The curves of the glass roof, traced out by the structural glazing give the space much of its character. Written and researched in collaboration with Foster and Partners and the British Museum and drawing on Fosters superb image archive, this is a magnificent little book on a world famous site.
