Description

The diverse and complex development of the art museum is nowhere more richly illustrated than through the architectural evolution of the four Tate galleries. Markedly different in location and appearance, Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool, Tate St Ives and Tate Modern nevertheless share certain features: their waterside settings, their distance from fashionable centres and their role in the regeneration of their neighbourhoods. In this illustrated book Helen Searing traces the architectural history of each site, not only focusing on the buildings themselves but also illuminating the artistic, political and cultural context of their conception and growth.
