Ulster Museum Refit

Ulster Museum Refit

Postby Maxwiggan » Sun Mar 29, 2009 3:46 pm

The ulster Museum one of Irelands most unique buildings has been undergoing a refurbishment and has been closed for two years. Judging from recent observations it seems the project is nearing completion, the concrete has been sandblasted clean and the wooden hoarding has been removed to reveal a new glass walled entrance on the ground floor. You can see a photo diary of the refurb project here http://www.ulstermuseum.org.uk/the-museum/photo-album/

Some complaints about the addition of the glass on the ground floor, Dont see the problem kinda makes the building float and you can see the interior support structure. I am however worried about cheap looking aluminum roofing not visable in photos but can be seen from accross the botanic gardens. pics to follow
