Herzog de Meuron’s new design for the Tate Modern, a twisting brick polygon, may be delayed due to fundraising. The new plan will be more sustainable, using 40 percent less energy and generating 35 percent less carbon. Currently slated for completion by the 2012 Olympics in London, the building may not actually open until 2013 or 2013, depending on fundraising.

Jacques Herzog says the new design “is not cheaper. It’s really to make everything better: more efficient, more compact, more flexible, and more green.”
