V&A Dundee architect Kengo Kuma says he is “delighted” to see his design “brought to life”.
The Japanese design mastermind is in the city today to see the finished article as work on the £80 million design museum’s external construction is completed.
Kuma is meeting staff from BAM Construct UK who have built the museum and thanked them for their hard work bringing his design to life.
The focus now moves to the interior of V&A Dundee, fitting out the gallery spaces, installing objects and completing other areas including the café and restaurant ahead of the opening on September 15.
Kuma said: “I am delighted to return to Dundee and see the completed construction of V&A Dundee.
“Today I am pleased to meet with some of the people who have brought our design to life, and to give my thanks for their hard work in creating this complex structure.
“I love the Scottish landscape and this very beautiful country, and I am proud to be working on this project which will attract people to Dundee from all over the world.”
