British Library of Political and Economic Science The centrepiece of the new library is the stepped circulation ramp which has been inserted into the centre of this existing building. A 'tortional closed form helical' is used to structure the main ramp, which is supported only on the outside face by six slender columns. Above this at roof level, a 30m leaning triangular glazed dome scoops natural light and draws it down the circulation space.
