Making Room will take inspiration from historic buildings in Dundee to produce a new interior room that will be built at the museum before being moved to Dundee Central Library, where it will function as an area for digital learning and making for the city.

The museum has also curated a new exhibition in response to the coronavirus pandemic, looking at how designers responded. Other design projects will be shown across the museum.

All visitors will need to book free tickets to enter V&A Dundee, as part of steps to keep visitors safe and to ensure physical distancing.
