Bold V&A museum transforms Scotland’s Dundee

An architectural gem on Scotland’s northeastern coast in the angled shape of design museum V&A Dundee has sparked hopes of a new start for a long-forgotten city.Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, who is designing Tokyo’s 2020 Olympic stadium, has created a structure that resembles two hulls sitting side by side on the banks of the River Tay in a nod to Dundee’s long history of shipbuilding.

Its concrete walls are covered in panels of grey rough stone to recall a craggy Scottish cliff, and an arch between the twin edifices links the road to the river – a reflection of Kuma’s goal to reconnect the city with the sea.The first offshoot of the Victoria and Albert Museum outside London houses treasures such as a salvaged tearoom designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and a 15th century Book of Days.
