DUNDEE.- Six stunning designs for the V&A at Dundee project will be unveiled at an exhibition in Abertay University library this Wednesday (29 September).
The 'V&A at Dundee - Making it Happen' exhibition features work from the six shortlisted teams of world-class architects and designers who have put forward outstanding ideas for a landmark building that will house the V&A at Dundee and dominate Dundees waterfront.
The six shortlisted companies who feature in the exhibition are:
Delugan Meissl Associated Architects
Kengo Kuma & Associates
Steven Holl Architects
Sutherland Hussey Architects
Sir Mark Jones, Director of the Victoria & Albert Museum, expressed his excitement at the quality of the architects response to the brief by saying, Fantastic designs from brilliant architects! Its great to see that the competition for the V&A at Dundee has attracted such a strong international response.
We have a range of designs that are very dynamic and exciting, said Mike Galloway, Director of City Development for Dundee City Council, one of the partners in the V&A at Dundee project.
Our shortlist features some of the brightest names in world architecture and design and I think they have shown with these designs why they are so highly rated. Our brief called for outstanding design to fit an outstanding location and I think the teams have lived up to that.
The V&A at Dundee will be Scotlands leading centre for design. Remarkable design requires a remarkable home, and the public are invited to get involved with shaping this project by giving their views on the proposals
These are fantastic designs and we hope as many people as possible visit the exhibition and the website and express their opinions on the models and designs, said Lesley Knox, Chair of Design Dundee Ltd, the company which has been established to drive the V&A at Dundee project forward, and Chair of the jury panel who will select the winning design team.
I am sure people will see things they really love and some will also have opinions that go the other way. But the key thing is that they make their opinions known, as it will feed into the jury panels decision.
The exhibition is in the University of Abertay Dundee library in Bell Street, Dundee, from September 29th to November 4th. All are welcome to visit the exhibition and admission is free.
The V&A at Dundee is being delivered by Design Dundee Ltd, a ground-breaking partnership between the Victoria and Albert Museum the worlds greatest museum of art and design - and the University of Dundee, the University of Abertay Dundee, Dundee City Council and Scottish Enterprise.
The V&A at Dundee is looking to create a landmark building, which will be sited at Craig Harbour right on the banks of the River Tay. The site is being made available through the Dundee Central Waterfront Partnership, the joint venture between Dundee City Council and Scottish Enterprise which is revitalising the prime area of land linking the city centre with the River Tay.
