V&A museum gets government millions

The Victoria & Albert museum project in Dundee has been awarded almost £5M by the Scottish Government.

Developers can now begin full fundraising for the work, including money to pay lead architect Kengo Kuma.

“The Scottish Government is making a significant capital contribution to the project, providing a sound funding basis to which the partnership can add from other sources to enable the project to proceed,” said Scotland’s culture minister Fiona Hyslop .

“The international architecture competition sparked an incredible response. With an internationally renowned architect in place, and a fantastic design, the V&A at Dundee will be an iconic building on the waterfront.”

The Scottish Government will provide capital funding of £458,000 in 2010-11 and £3.1M in 2011-12. Also, developers will be handed £280,000 of revenue funding in 2010-11, plus another £1M the following year.
