London-based museum V&A is the world’s greatest museum of art, design and performance and is one of the largest museums in Europe. This year they are expanding their footprint by opening their first museum outside of London – V&A Dundee.
It will be the first ever dedicated design museum in Scotland: an international centre for design, a place of inspiration, discovery and learning. V&A Dundee will present the largely untold story of Scotland’s outstanding design achievements, bringing together in one place the world-renowned V&A collections with loans from other collections in Scotland and beyond to allow everyone to understand and be inspired by this important design heritage.
The new museum was designed by the renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and is his first ever British building. In line with Kuma’s vision, V&A Dundee will be a new “living room for the city” – a place for all to enjoy and be inspired.
The Michelin Corporate Foundation supports the project for the first 10 years.
