Forum for Alternative Belfast present 'Belfast / a method' at Golden Thread Gallery

Golden Thread Gallery invites you to get a bird’s eye view of the 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.

FAB's City Model.

This is the first 3 dimensional model to be built of the city. A team of five “mini builders” have accurately depicted the city’s buildings at a scale of 1.500, making Belfast City Hall the same height as a 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 visitors will be able to see their neighbourhood in relation to the city centre, with vacant sites highlighted in bright red. For the first time the challenges and opportunities in repairing our city can be clearly seen.

The model will become a vital resource, setting a long term vision for Belfast.

Venue: Golden Thread Gallery, 84 - 94 Great Patrick Street, Belfast, BT1 2LU
Dates: 03 May - 08 June 2013 / Opening 02 May, 6pm

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. Join the conversation!
