We recently marked the 100th anniversary of the greatest peacetime maritime disaster in history, the sinking of the Titanic. Today we want to highlight the new attraction in Belfast, Ireland, the city where the Titanic was built. Architizer takes us inside Titanic Belfast, a visitor center that “recreates some of the ship’s more famous details.”
According to Architizer, this project is Northern Ireland’s “largest-ever tourist project (they expect up to a million visitors a year), and sprang from a collaboration between Concept Design Architects CivicArts/Eric R Kuhne & Associates and the Lead Consultant/Architect Todd Architects. The project took three years to complete (the same length of time it took to build the ship itself), and clocks in at 14,000 square meters.”
The Titanic Belfast, which opened on March 31st, allows visitor to learn about Titanic’s tragic voyage as well as experience what life was like on-board the ship in 1912. To learn more about Titanic Belfast or to plan your visit head over to www.titanicbelfast.com.
