The New Tate Modern – Eco-tastic!

tate modern

Herzog & de Meuron new design for the Tate Modern Extension (due to be completed in 2012) incorporates a modern, glass heavy aesthetic that totally contrasts the museum building’s origins as a power station. Recently they unveiled images of the redesign which brings a pyramid shaped brick structure to this anchor point of the museum. The new design not only fits the museum’s needs much more effectively, it will surely set the new standard for sustainability in the United Kingdom.
