    Abstract

    Research conducted during the AHRC-funded project Past-Present-Future-Craft-Practice (PPFCP 2005-10) indicated the need for a world-class Design infrastructure in Scotland.

    In 2008 Follett conceived the V & A at Dundee project, on the premise of providing audiences with a 360degree view of design by situating a new centre for design in Dundee in partnership with the V&A Museum.

    The City of Dundee, the University of Dundee and Scottish Enterprise conducted an in-depth discussion with the V & A to consider how a new museum might be created in Dundee. Sited on the waterfront development, the V & A Dundee would act as a capstone economic and cultural project to drive international awareness of excellence in Scotland's applied arts, the changes that have already taken place in Dundee and to act as an economic driver for the Tayside region and the Scottish applied arts community, complete with research centre for Scottish Universities. This Main Report summarised the proposal.
