Belfast/a method2 May - 16 June, at Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast
Opens Thurs 2 May, 7.00pm

The Forum launched Internationale Bauausstellung Belfast (IBBelfast) at the Forums annual summer school in August 2012 and the international dimension in Venice. Based on IBA87, a building project carried out in Berlin, IBBelfast seeks to restitch the disconnected urban structure of inner city Belfast.

IBBelfast runs from 2013 to 2018, 2013 being the 400th anniversary of the charter of Belfast as a town. Key to IBA87 was a large scale model of Berlin showing the potential and vision for the city. The exhibition launches Model IBBelfast and the first projects.
