Kengo Kuma, internationally renowned architect of the V&A masterpiece, will give a special talk to celebrate the museum’s first birthday on Sunday September 15.
Kengo Kuma will return to Scotland’s first design museum to discuss how designing V&A Dundee has informed the National Stadium, the main venue for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Finally, I’m here experiencing the V & A Dundee. The building is not a disappointment in contrast to the Design Museum London. Similarly it has a large open interior space but it makes sense and doesn’t seem to be a void waste of space. Kengo Kuma has achieved a masterpiece. #vandadundee #kengokuma #cliffs #maritimearchitecture #maritime #scotland #design #scottishdesign #innovation
V&A Dundee is also holding a day of free family activities from 10.00-17.00 to celebrate the first birthday, including free tours of the museum, live music, talks from designers, and drop-in design activities for all ages in the Thomson Learning Centre, including creating a new banknote to mark the first birthday.
The doors open for Kengo Kuma’s talk at 19.00.
