Set to open in June 2016


The new-look Tate Modern will open in June 2016, its director Nick Serota revealed last week. The 10-storey Switch House extension, designed by Herzog & de Meuron, was initially scheduled to be ready for the 2012 Olympics. Serota said the scheme has given him many “sleepless nights”. The concrete structure is now complete and the brick lattice screen is currently being attached.

Day Two of the Ecobuild event in March 2016 will be all about architecture and will feature top architects as guest speakers as well as hundreds of exhibitors. Click here for the latest conference programme, and to register FREE to attend.
