The Dundee V&A museum comes with a £45 million price tag and is due to open in 2016.
But fans of video game phenomenon Minecraft won’t have to wait that long for their first walk around the Kengo Kuma-designed building.
Thanks to the artists of local firm 4J Studios which developed the wildly popular console versions of the game a virtual V&A is already well under construction.
Using a new City texture pack being developed for the game, the 4J team are having some fun by building their own vision of their home city’s future waterfront, complete with a Minecraft RRS Discovery.
4J Studios developed the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the 3D building game and has seen sales soar as the game has become a global sensation.
The Xbox version recently recorded its 11 millionth sale, with the follow-up port for PlayStation Network selling over a million in its first five weeks.
