design tourist - London’s newest hotel citizenM

Last week I had the thrill of socializing with the We Blog Design community at the newly opened citizenM hotel at Tower Hill. As a working mum I don’t get out much on my own in the evenings unless I’m away for work, so I definitely stayed up way past my bedtime.

ART - not stuffy institutions

The opening of the new Switch House at the Tate Modern must have been the biggest art story in recent history. It’s now arguably the biggest museum of modern art and with that comes a lot of expectation. My expectations when I went to visit on the opening day were all about the space and the building. Ridiculous really when its actually a temple to art.

The Switch house though did not let me down. The new extension by Herzog & de Meuron is a monumental success as a piece of architecture, the interior of the building features raw concrete folded into dramatic angles. Grand sweeping staircases that quite frankly if Fred and Ginger glided down them I wouldn’t be surprised.
