Japanese architect says £80m V&A Dundee is embodiment of 21st-century public design
Kengo Kuma has spoken of his belief that “square box” public architecture is a thing of the past ahead of the opening of his £80m V&A Dundee design museum.
The 8,000sq m Tayside centre, which has come in at nearly double the £45m cost projected when Kuma won the design competition for the building in 2010, is due to welcome its first rank-and-file visitors on Saturday.
Speaking about the project on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, the Japanese architect reiterated that his inspiration for the building had been cliffs in the north-west of Scotland.
