Wyatt window. Tripartite window resembling a serliana, but with the arch omitted and the entablature carried over the wider central window, named after its inventor, James Wyatt. It may be placed in a segmental-headed recess, or may be capped by a pediment (e.g. the Radcliffe Observatory, Oxford (1776–94)).
