Take a tour of Herzog & de Meuron’s new extension to the Tate Modern
In this exclusive video the AJ interviews Herzog & de Meuron’s partner in charge of the project Ascan Merganthaler.
The much-anticpated towering brick-clad addition opened to the public last week - four years late and more than 20 per cent over its original budget.
The new extension, which stands on the site of the Giles Gilbert Scott-designed power station, doubles the size of the original Boiler House building
Underground the building’s cylindrical fuel tanks have been converted into a space dedicated to live art, installations and performance, while above them are three floors of galleries and further floors containing education spaces, a new members room, a restaurant and a bar.
