The Sackler Courtyard, which is the exterior section of London's V&A Exhibition Road Quarter, is made entirely of porcelain. It's the first and only public courtyard in the world to have such a lush makeup (viz. entirely porcelain), giving attendees to the museum a unique experience that they wouldn't be able to find anywhere else.

Serving as the connective tissue between several different museum halls and galleries, AL_A, the architects behind the project, knew that the Sackler Courtyard would need something substantial in order to stand out. As such, the firm built the courtyard with over 11,000 handmade ceramic tiles — an impressive feat that reflects the artisanship of the works that are housed within the various sectors of the museum.
