Apparently it means that tourists can navigate between Southwark tube station and Tate Modern using this 14-storey tower as a "touchstone".
Yeah, the orange lampposts saying "TATE MODERN" obviously won't be enough.
And the direction: "Turn left at the first set of lights/first crossroads/just past the theatre/opposite the Union Jack" is positively confusing compared to "Turn left at The Music Box".
Thank heavens for landmark buildings.
