The first museum dedicated to design in Scotland opened on September 15th, 2018. Designed by Kengo Kuma, its architecture overlooking the river Tay mimics the shape of the Scottish cliffs. The building’s geometric lines melt harmoniously with the urban landscape of the city of Dundee and its port. Created as “a living-room for the city” according to the architect, the Victoria & Albert museum is a place for all, in which design creativity is at the core of the project.
A new exhibition is about to open in St. Andrews showcasing recent discoveries and celebrating some of the most fascinating archaeological finds from our very own Kingdom.
Queen Elizabeth II by Cecil Beaton is the latest photographic show to arrive from the archives of London’s Victoria and Albert Museum to Dundee, in celebration of the Diamond Jubilee. As one of the most famous fashion photographers of the twentieth century, Beaton’s work shows the Queen as princess, queen and mother.
