V&A at Dundee Winner


Japanese architectural practice Kengo Kuma & Associates has been announced as the winner of the design competition for the V&A at Dundee. More than 120 firms competed to design the museum building, which will be sited at Craig Harbour on the banks of the River Tay in Dundee, Scotland, but Kengo Kuma won with a striated stone structure.

Lesley Knox, Chair of the V&A at Dundee project and jury panel substantiated the decision, saying, “[it is] a building that will delight visitors and encourage them to revisit it again and again. It demonstrates a clear understanding of the city, offers a new experience of the river, and will be as exciting internally as it will be externally.”
