In 1978, the Principal of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Myer Lacome, proposed a plan for a museum of design to be housed in a landmark building on Dundee’s waterfront. 40 years later his vision has finally been realised with the opening of the V&A Dundee.
With Dundee having been designated a UNESCO City of Design in 2014, an exciting new chapter has begun in the story of design education in Dundee. This exhibition celebrates the history of design teaching and research and showcases some amazing examples of design from the University of Dundee’s museum and archive collections.
The exhibition includes animation, comics design, graphic design, illustration, jewellery and metalwork, embroidery and textile design, architectural design, town planning, scientific and educational design and surgical instrument design.
