Picturing Scotland: Dundee
Content: Dundee, Scotland's fourth city, stands on the north bank of the Firth of Tay. It has gone through many phases of prosperity and poverty through the years, but now a great resurgence is happening in Dundee – a £1billion waterfront transformation, an ambitious 30-year project that is propelling Dundee towards a sustainable future of innovation and progress, the heart of it being V&A Dundee. V&A Dundee provides a place of inspiration, discovery and learning through its mission to enrich lives through design. Designed by renowned award-winning Japanese architects Kengo Kuma & Associates, this is Kuma's first building in the UK. Kuma's vision is that it will be a welcoming space for everyone to visit, enjoy and socialise in – a 'living room for the city' – and a way of reconnecting the city to its historic River Tay waterfront.
