vienna-based practice delugan meissl associated architects is one of 6 shortlisted teams for the international design competition of ‘V&A at dundee‘, organized in collaboration with london’s victoria and albert museum, abertay and dundee universities, dundee city council and scottish enterprise.

the design proposal engages with the already existing conditions of the waterfront landscape and creates an artificial topographical foundation which serves as a structural continuation between the city of dundee’s urban fabric and the river tay. the resulting grounds consist of a series of steps, angled platforms, public passage and open plazas which aim to provide an ideal public meeting place for both locals and visitors.

the monolithic volume is strategically chiseled and cut to provide specific views and sight lines of the area. the project features two large viewing stages facing the landscape and the city where the structure cantilevers over the entrance and public passage. the angled base which the museum sits on visually interacts with the faceted facade to seemingly open up to the orientation of the city or funnel in public movement.

  • Looking at it I wonder if its derivative of Porto, or in fact, new and fresh?

  • Tedious internal spaces wrapped in a carapace of pretense. What did the people of Dundee do to deserve this kind of contempt?
