A photograph taken by Phil Turner for Walkhighlands has been revealed as helping to inspire the design of the new V&A building in Dundee. The photograph was originally taken by Phil when researching the Walkhighlands route at Noup Head on Westray in the Orkney Islands.
The internationally renowned architect of V&A Dundee – Kengo Kuma – revealed that the photograph helped inspire the building during a short documentary. The photo can be seen in the video below at 2m19s. The new V&A building – costing £80.1 million – is the centrepiece of Dundee’s Waterfront and is set to open in 2018.
