Tate Modern Expansion

5 of 13

The Tate Modern debuted in 2000 and quickly became the world’s most popular modern art museum, attracting more than 5 million annual visitors. Architects Herzog & de Meuron’s much-needed addition is a latticework brick edifice above two disused oil tanks—huge subterranean spaces that will also be open for live art installations and performances. A second phase of expansion is slated for 2016.
