Stanhope worked with the Tate to bring forward the refurbishment and extension of this former electricity regenerating station, which has now become a major tourist attraction.

A previously unimagined vitality and dynamism is evident in the South Bank, as the formerly desolate area welcomes millions of visitors making their way each year to the Tate Modern.  More successful than the Tate and its development team ever envisaged, Tate Modern has sparked the regeneration of London’s South Bank and provided the capital with a modern art gallery to rival the likes of the Pompidou Centre in Paris.
