The Tate Modern
Wednesday, June 07, 2000; posted by Paris

The Tate Modern is a new art gallery built in a former electrical plant along the Thames - formerly known as the Bankside Power Station, designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott and completed in 1963. It was redesigned as a gallery by Herzog & deMeuron and completed in May 2000.

This work by Louise Bourgeois sits in the Turbine Hall. Visitors can climb the stairs of the works. You can really sense the scale of things in this image.
