The new North Learning Studio will be located at the north end of Tate Britain, just beyond the galleries themselves. Full-height glazing, long hidden, will be exposed to give good natural lighting to the studio and a view to John Islip Street. The studio will be fully equipped for a range of art-making activities. An additional studio in the south west of the building will provide a space for seminars, discussion groups and the display of work created through Tates Learning programme.
Media Studio and Schools Reception
A new Media Studio for digital learning activities will be located next to the Manton Foyer and close to the Linbury Galleries. State-of-the-art digital equipment will allow visitors to explore Tates online resources and carry out research. The network of existing vaulted spaces which support the Millbank steps will be opened up to provide a dedicated reception, lunch room and support facilities for the thousands of school children who visit Tate Britain each year. The landscape adjacent to the Millbank steps will be lowered to allow this space to be entered directly via a dedicated Schools Entrance.
