At the main branch of the San Francisco Public Library, there's essentially a box within a box. The inner box is where people are usually studying and where the computers are. The outer box houses the bookshelves. In between the boxes is an open space that extends from the basement to the top floor and there's a bridge that connects the inner and outer boxes. What's the name of that space?
I do have a photo, but would rather not self-link publicly. PM me if you want it (as we're all visual folk).
