After much construction work the impressive new extension to Tate Modern has opened and added a new landmark to London’s skyline. The interior of this twisted brick pyramid is fascinating to explore. On my first visit, I drew what I saw, whilst making my way upwards from the Tanks on the basement. Unfortunately, drawing took so long, that by the time I reached close to the top floor, where the viewing platform is located, it closed for the day. Judging from levels 0 to 9, I think the architects Herzog & de Meuron have done a fantastic job. I would recommend a visit.
