Tate Extension Mk 2

Artist's Impression of the Mark 2 Tate Modern Extension (2008)For some reason the chiefs in charge of Tate Modern have abandoned the original design of a glass ziggurat for its £215m extension and have now adopted a pyramidal design with a cladding of perforated brick. Maybe they thought all that glass would make the elephant dung steam. The new design looks better than that ugly jumble of greenhouses to which most of us gave the raspberry (CLICK), but I'm still not impressed. I think London deserves truly gobsmacking architectural elegance for £215m.
