Listening to the audio guide at the Tate Modern Gallery.
Tate Modern is Britain’s new national museum of modern art in London and, along with the Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool and Tate St Ivess a part of the Tate Gallery.
It is housed in the former Bankside Power Station (not far from Globe Theatre), which was originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, the architect responsible for Battersea Power Station, and built in two stages between 1947 and 1963. The power station closed in 1981. The building was converted by architects Herzog & de Meuron. Since its opening on May 12, 2000 it has become a very popular destination for Londoners and tourists.
Galleries are located on the third, fourth and fifth floors of the building. Thematically-arranged exhibitions from the gallery's permanent collection are located on the third and fifth floors, while temporary exhibitions are located on the fourth floor. The main hall of the building, which originally housed the power station's turbine is also used for temporary exhibitions.

J'aime bcp la perspective meme si elle est penchée. Très intéressant les reflets dans la fenêtre. J'ai fait un ws ou j'ai éliminé le bout noir à droite qui me gêne et redresser la photo

Voilà petit à petit sans bouger de chez moi j'ai l'impression de faire le tour de ce musée. Très bonne perspective. Joli jeu de lumière.

A fine series of photos you made at the Tate Modern, Sylvie. I picked this one to write something on, because I like how it conveys the sheer height and scale of this building. Another asset of this view is the contrast between the warm-looking and colorful 5th floor interior versus the spacious Turbine Hall. The reflections of the glass wall are a fine add, and the overall geometric impact from the leading lines, the lights, columns and stairs adds up to an appealing total. Good shot.
