V&A Dundee, designed by Japanese archi- tect Kengo Kuma, recently opened reveal- ing its light-filled interiors to visitors for the first time. The museum commented: “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.” V&A Dundee took three and a half


years to complete and it stands at the centre of the £1bn transformation of the Dundee waterfront, once part of the city’s docklands. With its complex geometry of precast planks, their design inspired by the cliffs along the north-east coast of Scotland, the building stretches out into the River Tay – as “a new landmark connecting the city with its historic water- front,” and a new major cultural develop- ment for Scotland and the UK. Philip Long, Director of V&A Dundee,


said: “The opening of V&A Dundee is a historic occasion for Dundee, for the V&A, and for the many people who played a vital

part and supported its realisation. This is a very proud moment for all involved. ” He added: “V&A Dundee’s aspiration is


to enrich lives, helping people to enjoy, be inspired by, and find new opportunities through understanding the designed world. After years of planning, we are thrilled at being able to celebrate the realisation of the first V&A museum in the world outside London. “The museum’s light-filled wooden


interior and impressive spaces inside have been designed to provide a warm welcome to visitors, described by architect Kengo Kuma as a ‘living room for the city’. We are all very excited indeed that we can now welcome everybody into this remarkable new museum.” Kuma commented: “The big idea for the


V&A Dundee was bringing together nature and architecture, to create a new living room for the city. I’m truly in love with the Scottish landscape and nature. I was inspired by the cliffs of north eastern Scotland – it’s as if the earth and water had


a long conversation and finally created this stunning shape.” The delivery of the project has


been overseen by the “innovative founding partnership” of the V&A, Dundee City Council, the University of Dundee, Abertay University and Scottish Enterprise. The £80m project was funded by the Scottish Government, The National Lottery, Dundee City Council, the UK Government, Scottish Enterprise, University of Dundee, Abertay University and a successful private fundraising campaign. Scottish Secretary David Mundell said:


“Quite simply, V&A Dundee is the biggest addition to Scotland’s cultural scene this century. It is a hugely exciting project – an instantly iconic new building on Dundee’s waterfront housing a treasure trove of artefacts. ” “I’ve no doubt it will draw millions of


people from Scotland and around the globe in the years to come”. The UK Government provided £5m to help deliver the project.
