V&A Museum of Design Dundee is the official UK representative at the XXI Milan Design Triennale, with the support of the British Council and the Scottish Government. The international showcase is part of the Scottish Government’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design 2016, a celebration of the nation’s global contributions to architecture, design, engineering and science.
V&A presents Adventures in Design, a specially commissioned comic strip created by Will Morris and David MacKenzie, charting the story of some of the UK’s most exciting design innovations.
Also on show is Genes in Space, a mobile game designed in a partnership between Guerilla Tea and Cancer Research UK to help gamers process complex genetic data – and help beat cancer sooner by harnessing the power of game players all around the world.
“We are delighted to be given the opportunity to represent the UK at this leading international celebration of design and would like to thank the British Council and the Scottish Government for their support in this.” Philip Long, Director of V&A Dundee, said.
V&A will open in 2018 and is the first in the UK by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma.
