What can we say about the Tate Modern? In case you’ve recently been defrosted from some long-running cryogenic experiment, here are a few facts about Britain’s official national museum of modern and contemporary international art. The galleries inhabit the former Bankside Power Station which was decommissioned in 1981. Sir Giles Gilbert, the building’s architect, also designed Battersea Power Station, while Herzog & de Meuron masterminded the conversion to its present gallery form in the mid 1990s. Absolutely unmissable on every level.
