Hadrian at the British Museum

Richard Lacayo has commented on the Hadrian: Empire and Conflict exhibition at the British Museum ("The Emperor Hadrian", Time, October 15, 2008). His assessment of the exhibition space (and that of the Chinese warriors) is spot on: "Good shows; bad space".

Lacayo continues:
the round space leads to awkward circulation patterns and bottlenecks around display cases.
