The pediment, at the top of the South entrance to the British Museum. The core of today’s British Museum building was designed by the architect Sir Robert Smirke (1780–1867) in 1823. The building was completed in 1852 and Smirke designed it in the Greek Revival style, which emulated classical Greek architecture. Greek features on the building include the columns and this pediment.
