Architectural Photography of Herzog & de Meuron’s Tate Modern extension.
With its distinctive perforated, lattice brickwork and dynamic, angular structure the Tate Modern Blavatnik Building - formally the Switch House - has quickly become an architectural icon. Located next to the Thames River on London's South Bank the new extension houses the Tate's ever growing collection of contemporary artwork.
Designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron the new building compliments their earlier refurbishment of Bankside Power Station, the original portion of the gallery. Internally the architecture is as equally impressive with concrete supports and angular columns dissecting the space. The architects have also incorporated the power stations original oil tanks into the design accentuating the industrial atmosphere. This selection of architectural photography documenting both the galleries interior and exterior spaces was carried out over a period of time for several clients and as part of a personal project.
