Queen Elizabeth II Great Court
The Queen Elizabeth II Great Court is the central quadrangle of the British Museum in London. Based on a 1970s design by Colin St John Wilson, it was developed during the late 1990s by Foster and Partners after the British Library relocated to its own building. In its centre is the British Museum Reading Room, formerly the main reading room of the Library. The Court, covered by a tessellated roof, also includes twelve sculptures from the British Museum's collection.Photograph: David Iliff
