Titanic Belfast and slipways
The "Titanic Belfast" building, viewed from the end of the slipways.
The two slipways, marked out by the tall posts, were once the main locations for shipbuilding in Belfast. Here many ships were constructed, including the 'Titanic' and sister vessels 'Olympic' and 'Britannic' from 1911-1915. To build the great ships the slipways were covered by the huge Arrol Gantry LinkExternal link which was eventually pulled down in the 1960s. Today the slipways have been partially preserved in conjuction with Titanic Belfast and have hosted a varietyof events and open air concerts.
"Titanic Belfast" (originally the Titanic Signature Project)
Work started, in May 2009, on what, at the time, was known as “The Titanic Signature Project”. The building opened to the public on 31 March 2012. This is a series of photographs showing the construction work underway and after the public opening. It is owned by an independent charitable trust known as Titanic Foundation Limited LinkExternal link.
The site occupies some 75 acres of waterfront, former industrial land on the eastern side of the River Lagan in the Titanic Quarter and close to the centre of Belfast. The architects were Todd Architects who designed J3372 : Department of Architecture, Queen's University, Belfast (2) and J3474 : The "Boat" site, Belfast (42).
