The Titanic Belfast Pays Tribute to a Doomed Vessel

The Titanic Belfast is a newly christened building that is to house a maritime museum dedicated to the ill-fated HMS Titanic. The building's concept and design are the work of the London-based architectural firm CivicArts. The realization of this design is owed to Belfast-based Todd Architects.

The Titanic Belfast cuts sharply into the Northern Irish sky as the bow of the HMS Titanic once cut into the North Atlantic sea on its first and only voyage. The metallic facade of the building glitters like all those jewels forgotten in drawers as passengers fled their cabins for the fleeting glimmer of safety.

CivicArts and Todd Architects have spared few expenses in creating a building that can live up to its inspiration; the Titanic Belfast pays thoughtful homage to the HMS Titanic. Stats for Shipwreck-Inspired Buildings Trending: Older & Warm
