In pictures: Kengo Kuma’s £80m V&A Dundee on site

  • Comment

New construction photographs of Kengo Kuma’s V&A Dundee, which was topped out last month, have been released 

The images show construction at various phases on the £80 million scheme looking out over the River Tay, which is set to open to the public in 2018.

The core inner and outer walls, stairwell and lift cores of the building have all been built. Precast panels will be installed on the building later this year, which the museum said will give it a ‘unique, slatted, multi-layered appearance’.

V&A director Tristram Hunt visited V&A Dundee earlier this month. He praised the building for its ‘totally stunning design, which provides exactly the right kind of space to tell the story of Scottish design’.

In an interview with the AJ last November, V&A Dundee director Philip Long said Kuma’s design was inspired by the ‘Highland form of the country and by the cliff forms around the Scottish coast’.
