Allan Watt on the curious (conveyancing) history of Dundee and its ever-changing waterfront

Dec 07, 2018, 12:00 PM

In our third podcast we’re heading to the sunny shores of Dundee to talk to Allan Watt, Project Director of Dundee Waterfront, the most active and exciting re-generation project currently undertaken in the UK.

Did you know that the grid layout re-connecting the city centre with the waterfront was simply sketched by hand one Saturday morning on a kitchen table? Today that plan features attractions such as the new V&A Design Museum Dundee, the first ever design museum built in the UK outside London.

Allan takes us through the history and influences on the project, sharing details such as the inspiration they took fromBilbao and their Guggenheim Museum as well as the involvement of local school children in the public consultation forming part of the 30 year-long project.
