The Boat

October 19 @ 13:00 - 14:00
The Boat, 49 Queens Square
Belfast, BT1 3HU United Kingdom

The Boat came from a commissioning process by the Laganside Corporation. The site, which was left over from a new road built alongside Custom House Square, is only 200m/sq in area. The developers’ brief was unusual, but inspirational and open-ended - to design an architectural set-piece. The small footprint and significant location resulted in the highly sculptural building that stands today.

Arup Belfast, Bedford House Bedford Street
Belfast, BT2 7FD United Kingdom

One of Belfast’s most valuable set of buildings may be 20th century, post-war offices that many dismiss as ‘ugly’.

Should more of Belfast’s 20 century buildings be renewed? If so, what is required to achieve high-quality refurbishment for these types of buildings?…
