It’s a shore thing for ‘refined’ V&A design

LATEST plans for the V&A museum in Dundee go on public display this month.
Plans for the site, as well as the latest ‘fly through’ and visuals, went on display as visitors were encouraged to share their views with staff over the three-day event.
Philip Long, director of V&A at Dundee, said architect Kengo Kuma had been in the city to present the latest refinements to his design.
“In tandem with developing the designs for the building, we are continuing to make very good progress on the content and programme for the wider project, which will have an impact right across Scotland and beyond.”
A new planning application notice for the project has been lodged with the city council ahead of a full revised planning application that will take into account the decision to move the building further on to the shore, at the heart of the redeveloped waterfront.
Kuma believes the move will create a greater connection between the project and the surrounding environment, including the RRS Discovery, the new railway station and on to the city centre.
