Design shortlist announced for V&A at Dundee

A shortlist of architect and design teams competing for the V&A at Dundee project has been announced today, featuring bidders from around the world. The six shortlisted companies are Delugan Meissl Associated Architects, Kengo Kuma & Associates, REX, Snøhetta in collaboration with Gareth Hoskins Architects, Steven Holl Architects and Sutherland Hussey Architects.

The project in question is a collaboration between the Victoria and Albert Museum, the University of Dundee, the University of Abertay Dundee, Dundee City Council and Scottish Enterprise. Over 120 architect and design teams from across the globe submitted their ideas for the project, which aims to develop a new centre of 21st century design for Scotland on the Dundee waterfront, revitalising the prime area of land between the city centre and the River Tay.

Lesley Knox, Chair of Design Dundee Ltd, said: “The high quality and wide variety of the shortlist will enable the partners to create a building which will not only be part of the transformation of Dundee's waterfront but also be a landmark for visitors from Scotland and all over the world.” Each of the six shortlisted companies will produce design concepts and models which will be on display in the library of the University of Abertay Dundee. The winner will be announced in late summer with plans to open the V&A in 2014.
