The Tate Modern Project
Competition 2005, project 2005 – 2012, realisation 2010 – 2016
Tate Modern has changed London since 2000. The impact it has had on urban design and the development of the South Bank and Southwark, has been as substantial as its influence on the city’s artistic, cultural and social life. The new development adds another decisive dimension to the architecture and environment of this quarter and beyond. With a new entrance to the South, and a direct North-South passage, taking people from the Thames through the existing building and the Turbine Hall out to a new city plaza to the South on Sumner Street and from there on to Southwark, the new development connects Southwark with the Thames and provides much improved open, public space.
Tate Modern is the world’s most visited museum of modern and contemporary art. In this next stage of development the vision was to establish a new model for museums of modern and contemporary art, by fully integrating the display, learning and social functions of the museum, strengthening links between the museum, its locality and the city.
