V&A Dundee by Ronnie Fleming

V&A Dundee is the first design museum in Scotland and the first Victoria and Albert museum outside London. Inspired by the dramatic cliffs along the east coast of Scotland, the building stretches out into the River Tay, reconnecting the city with its historic and beautiful riverside. The structure required to achieve this vision was extremely complex, consisting of a series of curved concrete walls which lock together to form a rigid structural shell. The inherent strength and stability of this approach ensured the building can sit firmly over an infilled dock site and project its prow over the river wall and into the Tay. (Dundee, Scotlant)
