Art is fragile; architecture is not. Paintings and sculptures speak to the quiet as well as the strife-ridden aspects of modern life. They only thrive in a carefully nurtured context-hospitable human spaces that invite lingering and revisiting-which is why the genius of the best curators is in their eye for juxtaposition and presentation as much as it is in scholarship and acquisition. Architecture needs to be strong and confident; but the instant museum architecture becomes ostentatiously strong and overconfident, the art is going to wither. The Tate Modern is a building that will not stop speaking and let us attend to the art.
