Tate Modern (England)

Tate Modern The capital of the United Kingdom is a museum of national and international modern art in London. Tate Britain, along with Tate Liverpool, Tate St Ives and Tate Online, are also referred to simply as Tate.

history
The art galleries in which Tate Modern is originally have different functions. Between 1947 and 1963, architect Giles Gilbert Scott built a “Bankside Power Plant” in this area with a two-phase construction, according to the design. In 1981, this power plant was shut down.

It was redesigned by Herzog & de Meuron, a group of architectural architects, and started to serve as a museum. The construction of the museum was realized by a construction company called Carillion.

Expansion project

Tate Modern, London
Tate Modern originally planned a slow expansion because it attracted more visitors than expected. According to newly announced plans, the museum will expand with three buildings to be built on the south side of the 2012 building.

Herzog & de Meuron, who designed the original museum building and was the owner of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, is also responsible for the expansion project. Initially, when the stepped pyramid glass structure was not liked by the museum, it was decided on a new design with a sloping brick façade to accommodate the brick ceiling of the original building. The most important part of the enlargement project will be the galleries where photographs, videos and similar exhibits will take place.

The project expected to cost £ 215 million will be completed in 2012 so that it will be ready for the 2012 Summer Olympics. In addition to this project, the original Tate Modern building will also see maintenance work.
