Tate Modern book
LONDON, UK, 27 September 2016 - Tate Modern has changed London since it opened in 2000. Its impact 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. With the second major building phase now completed, the new Tate Modern adds another decisive dimension to the architecture and environment of this quarter and beyond.

A new book, edited by Nicholas Serota, Director Tate, and Chris Dercon, Director Emeritus Tate Modern, captures the story of Tate Modern and the building of a twenty-first century museum. A conversation led by Chris Dercon with Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron reflects on the ideas and the vision behind the transformation of the former power station and its hidden spaces. Essays by architectural writers Beatriz Colomina, Wouter Davidts and Oliver Wainwright, and new photography by James Morris complement this publication.
The book is available in shops now.

Coinciding with the book release, a Public Talk will celebrate the opening of the new Tate Modern:
Jacques Herzog in conversation with Tate’s Director, Nicholas Serota. The talk is chaired by Oliver Wainwright, architecture and design critic of the Guardian.
Tuesday, 27 September 2016, 6.30 – 7.50 p.m. at Tate Modern, Bankside, London
