Belfast | 54(deg) 35’ 59.478” N | 5(deg) 55’ 39.918” is a celebration of mid-century architecture in Belfast and is inspired by the building at 1-21 Bridge Street which was built between 1957-59 in a ‘festival of Britain’ style after its destruction during the Blitz. The abstract geometric pattern is a representation of the railings surrounding the top of the building. To coincide with the festival, this print was specially designed for PLACE by Laura Buchanan, a designer and printmaker. Her work seeks to bring fun and enjoyment to the mundane through pattern, colour and form.
