V&A Museum Dundee 2014.. yes please.

 Just read about the new Museum project for Dundee's waterfront to be built in 2014.
 120+ firms applied designs for the landmark building and has been  shortlisted to 6 designs.

"It is suggested that the Dundee version of the V&A could be housed in a new £42m building, as part of the city's waterfront development.
It could create 900 jobs in the wider economy.

The V&A in London is regarded as the world's premier museum for art and design. The business plan suggested the Dundee museum could feature local strengths in illustration, comics, animation, interactive media and computer gaming."

If all goes to plan, this building will be amazing for us 'newly graduated designers'. Maybe not Jewellery, no harm in trying tho, eh?

The last design reminds me of a Rene Magritte painting.
