THE STORY SPACE
V&A Dundee museum is a brand new international centre of design, with an extensive showcase of Scottish creativity and captivating collections from around the world. Designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, this bold and dynamic building takes inspiration from the Scottish cliffs with the architectural vision continuing through to the internal spaces. As Scotland’s first design museum, V&A Dundee tells a global story, investigating the international importance of design alongside presenting Scotland’s outstanding design achievements. The construction and fit-out took three and a half years to complete and stands at the centre of the £1 billion transformation of the Dundee waterfront, achieving more than 27,000 visitors in its opening week.
