Faits

  • The building is a steel structure clad in over 4.2 million bricks.
  • Tate Modern started life as a power station.
  • The height of the main chimney was decided on so that it would not overshadow St. Paul's Cathedral, directly opposite on the north bank of the river Thames.
  • The power station was closed in 1981.
  • The magnificent and cavernous Turbine Hall is 3,300 sq metres (35,520 sq feet) in area and is the world's largest interior exhibition space.
  • The art gallery is dedicated to modern art created since 1900.
  • The top of the chimney is surrounded with translucent panels which glow blue at night and is known as the Swiss Light.
  • Tate Modern opened on 11th May 2000.
  • The cost of converting the power station into Tate Modern was £134 million.
  • Tate Modern was a key element in the regeneration of Southwark.
  • In 2001 the building was the recipient of the first Prime Minister's Award for Better Public Building.
