kengo kuma’s shortlisted design of the ‘V&A at dundee’ is a single volume composed of two tapered and offset forms which aims to generate new relations between the tay river and the waterfront.

Given the very prominent site of the project, the proposal not only looks at the building itself but a new addition of a network of public spaces to take advantage of the harbour space. The result is a literal extension of the public space onto the water and a promenade that meanders through and around the building.

The creation of multiple public plazas at the foot of the museum not only serve as an outdoor exhibition/event spacefor the institution, but reshapes the waterfront into a space for both locals and visitors to enjoy.
