Sometimes architects will take two tall (say 8-10 storey) buildings that happen to be near each other, and build a glass roof between them.
Down on ground, the area which originally would have been a street, or alleyway or something, now becomes a quasi-outdoor, courtyard type space where people can hang out and look up a roof/ceiling many storeys in the air.
What is the name for a space like this?
I think there are many terms which are used to describe this architectural feature. I just know there is one term in particular that - to me - describes it really well. So for example if you said to a friend
"I'll meet you at the __________ between the two buildings"
the friend would know where you meant.
I keep thinking "atrium" or something like that?
