We have a date, and it’s June 17, 2016. The new Tate Modern will have more space for new kinds of art and introduce us to artists from around the world.

The new ten-storey building has been created behind the original Bankside power station by the swiss architects duo Herzog & De Meuron. The revamp, costed 260m £, will feature additional galleries and new places to meet, learn and create plus a roof terrace with 360 degree views over the city’s skyline.

On the 16th of June, the night before the public opening, the new Tate will open its doors to someone new. No VIPs or press, the museum will host a special preview event for 5,000 children from across the UK.
