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.
I am lucky enough to have so many amazing museums in London at my doorstep, which are all free to get in. It provides with lovely opportunities, to just casually walk in, have a look at the amazing art, get inspired and just to have fun. Here just a small selection of some things inspiring me inside the National Gallery. Part 2 is to follow….
Here just some impressions from the Frieze Art Fair. As usual a very subjective look at what captured my eyes and my heart.
