A building as complex as a museum has many different functions. At certain moments of the day it is a theatre; at others, a cathedral. Some people would say it is like a market.'- Nicolas Serota

Art Spaces provides an illustrated insight into the evolution of the four Tate sites. Markedly different in location and appearance, Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Tate Liverpool and Tate St Ives nevertheless share certain features: their waterside settings, their distance from fashionable centres and their role in the regeneration of their neighbourhoods. Helen Searing traces the architectural development of each site, focusing not only on the buildings themselves but also illuminating the artistic, political and cultural context of their conception and growth.
