Call it a spaceship or a shipwreck, you simply can’t deny the fact it is a thrilling piece of art in itself. The huge body of this iconic master piece sits just on the banks of the river tay.
Over the last 4 years, it has been non the less exciting to see it all coming to life, and today the V&A Dundee opened its doors to the World media. Designed by re-knowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma with a clear vision ” a living room for the city ”

“The big idea for V&A Dundee was bringing together nature and architecture, to create a new living room for the city.
Very honoured to be one of the first few people to step feet inside this Museum to get a first glimpse. You can only imagine how much excitement I had in my belly, when I woke up on this crispy sunny day with clear blue skies. SUNNY DUNDEE, did indeed lived up to its famous title.
The £80 million project was funded by the Scottish Government, the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and Creative Scotland, Dundee City Council, the UK Government, Scottish Enterprise, University of Dundee, Abertay University and a private fundraising campaign.
