Perhaps the firm‘s highest profile museum project to date is the conversion of the Bankside power plant to Tate Modern in London, UK (2000). In 2005 Herzog & de Meuron were commissioned by Tate again to develop a scheme for the expansion of the gallery and its surrounding areas – the result, The Tate Modern Project (Switch House) opened in June 2016. The first phase of its extension, The Tanks – three circular industrial chambers over thirty metres across and seven metres high dedicated to exhibiting live art, performance, installation and film works – had opened in July 2012.
