On 17 June 2016 Tate Modern opened its new building, displaying a great variety of artworks and artists from around the world, presenting an increasingly international view of modern and contemporary art.
The new building is ten-storeys high! Its height responds to the chimney of the existing Tate Modern building which was originally designed as a power station by Giles Gilbert Scott in the 1950s. Its twisting, pyramid-like shape will be a memorable addition to London’s skyline and will offer 60% more space for visitors to explore.
From The Tanks on Level 0 you can go all the way up to Level 10 and enjoy the spectacular new roof terrace with 360-degree views of the river Thames, St Paul’s Cathedral and the dramatic London skyline!
