To echo the Scottish landscape he loves, Kuma coated the facade of the V&A Dundee with 2,500 pre-cast concrete panels that wrap around sinuous walls, creating undulating patterns of shadows that change with the weather and time of day like a tempestuous sea. Inside, he used his preferred construction material on the stepped interior walls on the main hall.

Overall, the museum measures over 90,000 square feet and includes the aforementioned hall, learning centres, an auditorium, exhibition galleries, and a permanent gallery dedicated to Scottish design. It also includes the Oak Room by Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh, a giant in the field and a personal source of inspiration for Kuma. No one has seen the Oak Room in nearly 50 years.

“I hope the museum can change the city and become its center of gravity. I am delighted and proud that this is my first building in the United Kingdom and that people will visit it from around the world,” says Kuma.
