Celebrating the building of Scotland’s new design museum

 

“The long, long dialogue between earth and the water”

~ Kengo Kuma, architect

Something wonderful is happening in Dundee, Scotland.

Not just the building of a new design museum, but the creation of a remarkable and unique art space.

In this short film, we learn about the intricacies and cutting-edge techniques that are being used to develop the first V&A museum outside London.

I find it so inspiring to hear the passion and the enthusiasm of all those involved in this amazing project.  And I love the idea that the museum will rise from the water’s edge like a rock face weathered over millions of years – such a clever juxtaposition with the building’s modernity.

“Architecture should be a part of nature” Kuma said in this talk, adding that “natural light is the most important material for architecture”.

Due to open in 2018, this will be a stunning edition to Scotland’s creative landscape.  Can’t wait!

  1. I’m looking forward to this! I’ve been through Dundee on the bus recently and seen all the signs and screens. It makes Dundee more viable for a day out or even weekend, especially with the Discovery and such as well 🙂
