On Friday 9th February, the V&A Museum of Design in Dundee was visited by its creator, Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. Kengo Kuma and Consul General Matsunaga had an opportunity to view the work in progress as they were shown around the site by V&A Dundee Director Philip Long.
Following ten years of planning, the museum is to be opened this year on 15th September.
Kengo Kuma is known for being the designer of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics stadium. His design for the V&A Museum of Design was inspired by the cliffs on the east coast near Arbroath, and the new building is expected to play an important role as the focus of Dundee’s waterfront regeneration.
