The iconicpower station consisted of a stunning35m high and 152m long turbine hall,with boiler house alongside it. Theturbine hall provides a dramatic entrancearea and exhibition space while actingas a reminder of the industrial roots ofthis imposing riverside presence.Tate St Ivesopened in June 1993although proposals for a permanentgallery dedicated to showing the work ofartists living in and around St Ives hadbeen under discussion since the 1960s.
