Ok, I had to cue up for a while to go and see the newly finished Switch House at the Tate Members viewing, but it was well worth the wait. An exceptional building built by Herzog & de Meuron, the buildings literal highlight is the 360 degree viewing platform on the 10th floor. And being a lover of brutalist architecture, the concrete curves and play of light, lines and proportions are a dream. I didn’t have enough time to check out all the new art on display, but for sure will be back soon.

What an amazing addition to London….and all for free.
