The doors of the V&A Dundee, Scotland’s first design museum, will open this autumn and we are delighted to have been able to secure an early visit. We will have an architectural tour of this award-winning building, designed by Kengo Kuma, followed by an introductory talk on the various permanent design galleries and the first exhibition on display from Director, Philip Long. After lunch Friends will have the opportunity to tour the galleries and see the opening exhibition, Ocean Liners: Speed and Style. This is the first exhibition to fully explore the design and cultural impact of the ocean liner on an international scale, focussing on engineering and interior design as well as the lifestyle on board.
