Victoria and Albert at Dundee: is to redevelop the city’s Waterfront and is destined to become a world landmark. V&A at Dundee will be Scotland’s leading centre for design. It will showcase Scottish 2oth and 21st century design talent, provide a UK base for major international touring exhibition and will aspire to be Scotland’s National Design Centre.
The new building is going to be an architectural phenomenon and a manifestation of 21st Century museum, both in design and operation. Over 120 architects from across the world took part in the competition to design V&A at Dundee building. Six remarkable designs have been shortlisted, and are currently on display at Abertay University Library until the 4th of November. The visitors can contribute to the project by leaving their comments and opinion which will be taken into account by the judging panel. The space will open in 2014/2015.
The V&A at Dundee project is a collaboration between Victoria and Albert Museum, Scottish Enterprise, Dundee City Council, and the Universities of Dundee and Abertay. The gallery space will be a statement of the country’s commitment to contemporary design. The project will provide a unique resource for education in the applied arts as well as deliver a memorable landmark structure. It will lead to definite boost for Scotland’s economic growth.
Roger Grace from Dundee City Council Engineers Division said: “It is an excellent project. It is very exciting and it will definitely be positive for city’s development.”
The project is a massive enhancement to the City of Dundee’s undergoing process of visual metamorphosis. The city’s Waterfront regeneration started 10 years ago but has 20 years of work remaining. The alteration of city’s image will provide new opportunities for economic growth.
