In May 1994, the Tate Gallery in London announced that it was going to create a huge modern art gallery in London. This book tells the inside story of how the new gallery was built at Bankside power station. It looks at: how and why the architect was chosen; how the design evolved; how well the Tate team - unused for the most part to behaving like developers - guided the design and construction process; how the building was gutted and prepared for the massive amount of new construction; how the decisions were made about what to put in the gallery and where; how the local community was kept happy; and how the landscaping was designed.
