Often such buildings constitute a piece of art in itself. They are architectural and engineering masterpieces. They are the haute couture of the construction industry. And they are often the most challenging buildings to build.
In this role Arts & Culture buildings create much more value than what is measurable. This fact is widely recognised and cities are increasingly investing in Arts & Culture buildings.
Ramboll pursue Arts & Culture buildings all over the world and work in close collaboration with leading architects and local partners worldwide.
Tate Modern gallery
London's Tate Modern gallery occupies a former oil-fired power station on the south bank of the River Thames, opposite St Paul's Cathedral. The huge brick building was constructed from 1947-1963 and is a Grade II listed structure. Immediately to the south are the switch house and three very large underground oil tanks, 8m deep and constructed in concrete. As part of a wider project known as The Tate Modern Project, we are working with architect Herzog & de Meuron on an extraordinary new building, currently known as Tate Modern II. The project includes the redevelopment of part of the switch house and close integration, both visually and physically, with the main building.
