London Tate Modern Card
This blank card features the iconic Tate Modern in the South Bank and is the perfect gift for anyone who loves London architecture.
The former Bankside Power Station was selected as the new gallery site in 1994. The following year, Swiss architects Herzog & De Meuron were appointed to convert the building into a gallery. That their proposal retained much of the original character of the building was a key factor in this decision.
The iconic power station, built in two phases between 1947 and 1963, was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. It consisted of a stunning turbine hall, 35 metres high and 152 metres long, with the boiler house alongside it and a single central chimney. However, apart from a remaining operational London Electricity sub-station the site had been redundant since 1981.
The design is digitally printed on to 300gsm FSC certified card and comes packaged in a biodegradeable cellophane wallet.
