The V&A Dundee Museum of Design is a £80 million GBP (over $111 million USD) structure designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma located on the River Tay waterfront in Scotland. The building is the first V&A division located outside of London, dedicated to showcasing Scotland’s rich design heritage as well as the best designs from around the world.

The structure’s stunning exterior comprises of 2,500 cast stone panels and is inspired by the dramatic cliffs along the east coast of Scotland. Kuma described a vision of creating a “living room for the city,” and from some angles, the building looks like the prow of a ship. At the center of the museum will stand a restored oak-paneled room originally designed for a Glasgow tearoom in 1907 by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

The museum will feature free-to-enter galleries housing over 300 exhibits drawn from the V&A’s archives, various museums and private collections. The V&A Dundee’s opening exhibition, titled Ocean Liners: Speed & Style, will “re-imagine the golden age of ocean travel and explore all aspects of ship design from the remarkable engineering, architecture and interiors to the opulent fashion and lifestyle on board.”

The V&A Dundee will open to the public on September 15, 2018. Share your thoughts on the structure below and for more architecture news, Antoni Gaudí’s first residential house opens to the public in Barcelona.
