This incredible piece of architecture is Titanic Belfast which was designed by the American born architect Eric Kuhne and built by Harcourt Developments. This world class visitor attraction is now the 2nd most visited in Ireland and is Ireland’s only 5* graded experience. It takes you on a journey through Belfast’s industrial past and tells the story of the ‘unsinkable’ Titanic. The entire facade is clad in 3000 individual silver anodized aluminium shards which reflect in the pools below like shimmering waves in water. The shape of the building also resembles the hulls of 4 ships, each standing 90 feet high! The 14,000 sq m building took three years to complete (the same length of time as The Titanic) and is designed to accommodate up to 1 million visitors per year! A Titanic undertaking.
