TITANIC BELFAST



To mark the centenary of the launch of White Star lines famous Titanic in April 1912, the regeneration of Queen's Island, a massive and ambitious building programme, saw the opening of Titanic Belfast.  This is a huge centre with many galleries charting the history of shipbuilding in Belfast and all things Titanic with a reproduction of the famous staircase and clock onboard the ship in the first class deck.


I have to say as an admirer of more classical architecture, that I found the new titanic Belfast buildings to be very dynamic and thrilling.

The angles were effective and recreate the sense of power and sleek beauty that Titanic embodied in its day.


Standing beneath the 'bow' of the building gives an awesome sense of scale of the ship's hull.





Hope you enjoyed these few photos of this impressive site!

  5. A very unusual structure. Will the surface maintain it's bright luster or will it develop an aged patina over time? Either would suit it well. - Margy

  6. I visited this museum when I was in Ireland a couple of years ago - so much info to read inside. My friend and I had a nice lunch just around the corner on the boardwalk.

  11. I think I consider myself more of a "classic architecture" person too but I enjoy modern architecture a lot. It will be amazing to visit this place. A few year ago, I went to an exhibition about the Titanic in Las Vegas and it was mind blowing.

  15. Hello Christine!:) Some amazing images of the meuseum. It's powerful size, and multifaceted sides are most affective, for I think the way the sharp angles catch the light gives the affect of different aspects of the sea.I showed your photos to my granddaughter yesterday,who is an architect, and she was so excited to see them.
