London: Tate Modern

London is not a place I necessarily think to go and seek architecture. I recall it as mostly banking bohemouths and churches from previous visits. Then I found the Tate Modern….

I wanted to take my design team on a tour somewhere to help set the stage for the exercise that would create Haida, the design for FirefoxOS 2.0. As luck would have it, I could not have made a better choice. In my slide deck I asked “Why the Tate Modern?”. My answer “History”. “Vision”.

The large open exhibition space, set aside by the smaller gallery spaces created a juxtaposition of scale. Looking into the expanse from above, one’s mind really took off at all the possibilities of expression.

Not to be missed is the view from the top. Herzog & de Meuron still stand true as one of my favorites.
