The Rayograph

Titanic Memories

Dreamt up by London-based architects CivicArts and made a reality by Todd Architects of Belfast, Titanic Belfast is a glistening museum honoring that famous ship with a tragic ending. The museum stands on the very site where the ship was built, and its construction is part of an effort to revitalize the area, Queen’s Island, and turn it into a bustling waterfront. The building’s exterior hints at the form of a ship, what with its four hull-like projections covered in angular shards of anodised aluminum. At the center of the building stands a five-story glazed atrium. Along an interior wall, acid-stained steel plates suggest the rusty metal sidings of old ships. Tour the newly-opened museum, thanks to these interior and exterior photographs by Christopher Heaney.

    Absolutely wonderful. The Rayograph is my number one connection to what is truly the best of art and architecture – the better side of humanity.
