Tate Modern, London: 154 reviews and 243 photos

by alyf1961

Tate modern stands on the banks of the river Thames. The building was a power station that was refurbished by Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron.
The building was built in the 1940?s and 50?s to Giles Gilbert Scott?s design.
The new project retains the 325FT tower and the huge turbine hall.
Although we spent pleasant hour here I really don?t get modern art.
