Yes, of course, but you really need to go there in person, the place is huge. Its called the Turbine Room as it was once filled with machinery used when it was a power station - other projects that have utilised the vast space include:

Anish Kapoor's 550ft long Marsyas that was the worlds largest sculpture:

Rachel Whiteread's sugar cube maze:

the current one is Miroslaw balka's Black Hole, a pitch black void which is utterly terrifying:
