As part of London's burgeoning population of HUs happily unmarrieds I expect to have to organize outings and distractions for myself and I have just been to see the Edvard Munch Exhibition http://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-modern/exhibition/edvard-munch-modern-eye at Tate Modern. Much of Tate Modern's huge appeal is the way its vastness can accommodate so many people, all of whom are clearly having a great time. And much of this is due to the way the old Bankside Power Station architect Giles Gilbert Scott has been transformed by its revisionist architects, Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron. The two architects are now working on the Tate Modern Extension http://www.tate.org.uk/about/projects/tate-modern-project/design building it in matching precision brick. Models and projections of the new building are on display and I found them to be inspiring.
