V&A Dundee

Kengo Kuma to give public lecture

Press release

01 February 2013

Kengo Kuma, architect of V&A at Dundee, will discuss his approach to architecture and how a new relationship is being formed between people and place at a public lecture in Dundee next month.

Kengo Kuma will talk about his projects around the world as well as updating progress on his thoughts and designs for V&A at Dundee. The \'Power of Place\' lecture will take place at the Dalhousie Building, University of Dundee, at 6pm on Monday February 18th.

Mr Kuma previously gave public lectures in Dundee in May 2011, when the initial event was so heavily oversubscribed that an extra session had to be added to accommodate over 1400 interested people.

“I am delighted to welcome Kengo Kuma back to Dundee for this public event,” said Philip Long, Director of V&A at Dundee. “As he showed during his previous lectures here, he is an extremely engaging speaker and can offer fascinating insights both into his own projects and how architecture affects all our lives.”

Tickets for the lecture are free but advance booking is recommended.

All welcome.
