Belfast / A Method
An exhibition by The Forum for Alternative Belfast
The Golden Thread Gallery invites you to get a bird’s eye view of your city. Belfast/ a method is an exhibition by The Forum for Alternative Belfast, a community interest company that campaigns for a more connected built environment for the city of Belfast, and its people.
This is the first 3 dimensional model to be built of the city. A team of five “mini builders” are working at accurately depicting the city’s buildings at a scale of 1.500, making Belfast City Hall become the same height as cup of tea.
The team have surveyed each and every building and created a large scale wooden model with the help of the FabLab, Queens University Belfast and the University of Ulster.
As the model grows people will be able to see their neighbourhood in relation to the city centre where vacant sites are highlighted in bright red. For the first time the challenges and opportunities in repairing our city can be clearly seen.
The model becomes a vital resource, setting a long term vision for the city.
Belfast / a method, exhibition has a full programme of events that will inform and inspire, government decision makers, planners and the people who use the city every day.
