A Glass Pyramid

Yesterday, I mentioned that I went to the Tate Britain to see an excellent performance by Scritti Polliti. It was a great evening on the lawn outside. I didn’t go in the building. In fact, I don’t think I have been in Tate Britain since they moved all the modern work to Tate Modern. Although modern, contemporary art doesn’t always work for me I do love Tate Modern for its location, for the building and for the scale of things.

It’s good, therefore, to see that it’s doing well. So well, in fact, that they are proposing a radical new extension to the building in the form of a great glass pyramid. The artist impressions look absolutely stunning and I really hope that it gets built. I am certain there will be an outcry because of the scale of the building next to the historical landmark that is the power station that houses the current exhibition space but I think they will work well together.. The pyramid would be a superb addition to the South Bank which already is one of my favourite parts of London.

On this day…
