“V&A at Dundee will be an international centre of design for Scotland. It will celebrate Scotland’s historic importance in design and host major exhibitions of outstanding design, helping people understand their own and others’ cultural heritage.

V&A at Dundee will become indispensable to makers, teachers and industry nationwide as a place for the cultivation and exchange of knowledge, opportunity and design innovation. It will develop opportunities for diverse communities to engage with, learn from and enjoy design creativity, past and present.”

“V&A at Dundee will have outstanding social spaces, making it a great place to meet, eat, relax, browse, learn and shop while enjoying the building’s architecture and its world-class location on the River Tay. V&A at Dundee will become a centre for everyone – as lead architect Kengo Kuma describes it – ‘A Living Room in the City’.”
