Forum for an alternative Belfast

City Model

In May 2013 the forum displayed a new city model. The forum is currently working to have the city model publicly displayed as a resource for the city.

Cities best demonstrate their future vision using physical models. Stockholm, Shanghai and Chicago have physical models that illustrates their city vision to potential investors and allows everyone to understand their city as a whole. Taking inspiration from the model in Berlin, FAB began to build a model of Belfast, the first section of which was displayed in the Golden Thread Gallery in May 2013

The production of the model was led by Aoife McGee and a dedicated team: thanks also to the many Saturday volunteers who assisted painting the model to help meet the exhibition opening date
