“The long, long dialogue between earth and the water”

~ Kengo Kuma, architect

Something wonderful is happening in Dundee, Scotland.

Not just the building of a new design museum, but the creation of a remarkable and unique art space.

In this short film, we learn about the intricacies and cutting-edge techniques that are being used to develop the first V&A museum outside London.

I find it so inspiring to hear the passion and the enthusiasm of all those involved in this amazing project. Β And I love the idea that the museum will rise from the water’s edge like a rock face weathered over millions of years – such a clever juxtaposition with the building’s modernity.

“Architecture should be a part of nature” Kuma said in this talk, adding that “natural light is the most important material for architecture”.

Due to open in 2018, this will be a stunning edition to Scotland’s creative landscape. Β Can’t wait!
