I haven't told you yet how much I LIKE this one too, dearest P ~ and hopefully you ae right in claimng that this will be how future urban architecture will look like!!!

Spacy hugs ~ A

beegood ~ So yes dearest A in a year or two the Tate Modern will actually look very modern :)) ~ however I make no claims whatsoever that the future urban architectural style will follow this design and I think it might be a trifle unsettling if it were to ~ Deflated Hugs ~P

I WILL check on that dearest P, and I would no toppose it! ~ hurrying hugs ~ A

beegood ~ OK dearest A ~ I hope that the contents are even more inspiring than the exterior ~ Hopeful Hugs ~P

That depends exclusively on Martin Karlsson dearest P ~ creative hugs ~ A

beegood ~ Good detective work dearest A as Outside Tate Modern at Holland Street ~ To celebrate the beginning of the works for Tate Modern's new building, Swedish artist Martin Karlsson has created a project on the 100-metre hoarding that encloses the works. London – An Imagery 2008–9 takes as its starting point Gustave Doré's gothic etchings published in 1872. Karlsson updates this portrait of the city and its inhabitants.

I took some shots of his work some time ago and in fact have one or two of them on Pano somewhere or other ~ Recorder Hugs ~P

picsonthemove ~ Who knows Pics building still goes on in London and the value of such commercial properties is still on the rise ~ but as to who is paying for this extension ~~~ maybe they will have to sell the odd painting if they run short of funds :) ~ Ciao nick
