The V&A launches design contest for £47 million new Dundee home
The V&A has launched a search for architects to design V&A at Dundee, a new centre of design for Scotland planned for the city’s waterfront
The £47 million project is planned to open in 2014 and, according to the V&A, will occupy a ‘prime site at the heart of Dundee’s redeveloped waterfront’.
The landmark building will sit just to the south of Craig Harbour on a site to be created out into the River Tay.
‘We are proposing a stunning location actually out into the River Tay and we want to find a design team that can deliver a world-class building fitting for such a high quality project,’ said Mike Galloway, director of City Development for Dundee City Council.
‘A two-stage architectural competition is about to be launched and we expect to have interest in this project from prominent architects and designers from around the world’.
The official tender will soon be announced in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU). The expected expressions of interest due date is 12.02.10
