The Great Court’s spectacular roof contains 3,312 panes of glass, and no two are the same!

I adore this roof. First time I saw it, I was in awe of its design and beauty. I still am.

Nice and yes great architecture , however all that glass makes atmosphere stuffy and if sunny, hit. As per visit yesterday. Do wish architects WD prioritize function over form
