V&A Museum Of Design Dundee

 

V&A Museum of Design Dundee

V&A Museum Of Design Dundee will be an international centre for design for Scotland - the first ever design museum to be built in the UK outside London. The V&A Museum of Design Dundee will be housed in a world-class building at the heart of Dundee's waterfront. It will host major exhibitions, celebrate Scotland's design heritage, inspire and promote contemporary talent, and encourage design innovation for the future.

In September 2014 BAM Construction was appointed as preferred bidder for the building designed by renowned architect Kengo Kuma. Funding for the museum is being achieved by both public and private donations including the Heritage Lottery Fund, Creative Scotland and a wide range of charitable trusts and companies. In addition to Scottish Government and lottery support, the campaign to fund the V&A Museum of Design Dundee aims to raise further funds.

This is an extraordinary, once in a century opportunity to transform Dundee. To make a unique contribution to Scotland's cultural landscape, inspire generations and showcase Scotland's rich legacy of design.
