Built on what was once the Bankside Power Station, the Tate Modern’s industrial design is unlike the other fine art institutions of the world. When most museums are designed by notable architects or utilize former palaces, the Tate Modern sought to preserve the original edifice—a very modern sensibility that is currently en vogue. Though the building may be of an old-world sensibility, the works inside, created by the leaning artists in modern art history, are any but. These oeuvres serve to inspire and spark conversation—much like the building itself.
