Stunning architectural designs for a landmark building to host the V&A at Dundee

About

The Architectural Designs For The V&A at Dundee exhibition showcases the six shortlisted designs from the international architectural competition for the V&A at Dundee, which attracted over 120 entries from around the world. The competition was won by Japanese architectural practice Kengo Kuma and Associates, who are now working to develop and realise the winning proposal. Work is projected to start onsite in 2012 and be completed by late 2014. The V&A at Dundee will be an international centre for design housed in a stunning new building at the heart of Dundee's waterfront on the river Tay. The building will create a world-class public space that celebrates the creative culture and evolution of design, its role in our lives, its economic impact and its commercial relevance. The exhibition of designs has already been seen by thousands of people in Scotland and now moves to London. Around 15,000 people visited the exhibition when it was unveiled in Dundee last autumn and it has since been shown at the Scottish Parliament building in Edinburgh and at the Lighthouse in Glasgow. The V&A at Dundee is being delivered by Design Dundee Ltd, a partnership between the V&A and Dundee City Council, the Universities of Dundee and Abertay Dundee, and Scottish Enterprise. The Architectural Designs For The V&A at Dundee exhibition will run until May 15th at the V&A and will be sited in rooms 17a and 18a, adjacent to the Buddhist Sculpture (Robert H.N.Ho Family Foundation) Gallery.
