I’m planning to be in London in August, when the AERIN Collection is launching at the city’s iconic Harrods department store. Another London landmark, the Tate Modern, is also on my must-see list for its new expansion, Switch House, by Herzog & de Meuron.
The new building, which has just opened, is stunning—an angular, pyramid shape with a perforated brick lattice façade that glows in the evening. Herzog & de Meuron also adapted the original museum, turning the Turbine Hall of the Bankside Power Station into an iconic home for contemporary art installations and performances. The architects also designed the Parrish Art Museum in Watermill, a spot I love to visit when I’m in the Hamptons. The new addition provides space to display up to 60 percent more artwork from the Tate’s collection.
