Scotland’s first design museum, the V&A Dundee in Dundee, Scotland, was opened in September 2018. The three-story building is shaped like two inverted pyramids and has exterior walls that twist both horizontally and vertically. The striated façade comprises 2429 precast concrete panels and invokes images of the cliffs of the Scottish coastline. The building is a hybrid structure of concrete and steelwork with reinforced concrete walls and structural steel floor and roof structures.
