The Tate Modern Museum Scale Replica Kit By Model Landmarks is the perfect gift for fans of great architecture and architects. This kit accurately details the Tate Modern Museum located in London. There was a power station on the Bankside site since the 1890’s. The existing structure was designed by Giles Gilbert Scott in the mid 1940’s. From 1981 to the early 1990's the property stood dormant. In the early 1990s, Tate purchased the site and with help from the Millennium Fund embarked on a monumental project to convert the power station into a gallery. An architectural competition in July 1994 was won by the architects Herzog & de Meuron. The new Tate Modern opened its doors to the public in 2000. Tate Modern’s vision to be at the forefront of the visitor experience when it comes to interacting with works of art took another brave step when they again commissioned Herzog & de Meuron to design an extension to the existing building. The extension was to accommodate performance and installation art. The new space includes a dynamic new brick structure, the Blavatnik Building.
