Completed - The Tate Modern Project
The new Tate Modern redefines the museum for the twenty-first century. Already the world’s most visited museum of modern and contemporary art, with the completion of the Switch House it now provides more space for visitors to engage with the expanding collection, including art involving photography, film, video and performance; transformative new spaces for learning; and social spaces to unwind and relax in the gallery. The dramatic new 10-storey brick-clad building to the south of the existing building rises up from the subterranean Oil Tanks to increase the size of the museum by 60% and provide 70% more space for displaying art. A new entrance and landscape to the south of the building creates a route from Southwark through the Turbine Hall and onto the Thames Path.
