The V&A is hosted in a wonderful new building on the waterfront. It was designed by Kengo Kuma & Associates, who also designed the stadium for the Tokyo 2020 Olypmics. As well as the building itself there are always exciting exhibitions there. An emblematic building like this can help revitalise a town. Dundee is easy to reach by overnight sleeper train from London, just as London is easy to reach from Dundee. Building on the likes of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the V&A in Dundee aims to become the centre for a resurgence of Scottish design.
This page is part of Coastal Knowledge, an online exhibition mapping some of the amazing places on the coast of Scotland. It includes pictures, memories, artworks, stories and videos submitted by a variety of people including scientists, artists, coastal dwellers, tourists, and community organisations. We want to share the beauty of the Scottish coast, but also its vital role in the day-to-day lives of people in Scotland- for example, its many industrial roles.
This exhibition is dynamic and ongoing- and we’d love for you to share contributions for it too! To learn more and submit your own coastal knowledge, visit the main page of the exhibition.
