Victoria and Albert Museum launches competition for a design centre on Dundee’s waterfront

Six designs for the V&A at Dundee project have been unveiled at an exhibition in the city.

The “V&A at Dundee - Making it Happen” exhibition features work from the six shortlisted teams of architects and designers who have put forward ideas for a building that will house the V&A at Dundee and dominate Dundee’s waterfront.

The six shortlisted companies who feature in the exhibition are:

  • Delugan Meissl Associated Architects
  • Kengo Kuma & Associates
  • REX
  • Snøhetta
  • Steven Holl Architects
  • Sutherland Hussey Architects

Mike Galloway, director of City Development for Dundee City Council, said: “Our shortlist features some of the brightest names in world architecture and design and I think they have shown with these designs why they are so highly rated. Our brief called for outstanding design to fit an outstanding location and I think the teams have lived up to that.

“The V&A at Dundee will be Scotland’s leading centre for design. Remarkable design requires a remarkable home, and the public are invited to get involved with shaping this project by giving their views on the proposals.”

The exhibition is in the University of Abertay Dundee library in Bell Street, Dundee, from September 29th to November 4th. All are welcome to visit the exhibition and admission is free.

The V&A at Dundee is being delivered by Design Dundee Ltd, a partnership between the Victoria and Albert Museum and the University of Dundee, the University of Abertay Dundee, Dundee City Council and Scottish Enterprise.
