On Friday the world’s most popular modern art museum, the Tate Modern, opens a new 10-story wing designed by the Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron. Called the Switch House, the extension will show off contemporary work, including film, installation and live performance, and will add 60 percent more space to the already enormous former power station on the banks of the Thames.
