The Titanic Signature Project, Belfast (18)
See J3575 : The Titanic Signature Project, Belfast (17). A close look at the building, some of which has still to be clad. When complete, it will have the shape shown in this and previous photographs but will also feature a distinctive outer cladding.
Quoting from the website of CivicArts Eric R Kuhne & Associates: “Almost the entire façade will be clad in faceted, three-dimensional zinc plates in a pattern redolent of the construction methods used on the great ocean liners. The reflection pools that spread out from its base further enhance the allusions to naval architecture, multiplying the reflections and nocturnal illuminations. The lower portions of the four wedges tell the evolution of shipbuilding technology by being first clad with lapped timber planking, riveted iron, welded steel, and finally, aluminum.” Continue to J3575 : The Titanic Signature Project, Belfast (19).
