Photographer's Note

The world has been empty since the Romans ...

The building has been converted by the leading Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron, whose plans have highlighted the building's new function while respecting the integrity of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott's original design. The most noticeable change to the exterior of the building is a new two-storey glass structure or lightbeam spanning the length of the roof which not only provides natural light into the galleries on the top floors, but also houses a stunning café offering outstanding views across London.
