Writing educative posts is not so encouraging anymore on Hive but let's see what happens after the Upgrade. Before then there's a topic I started with my group which I made a little writeup about and I'll be discussing in this blog.
Ocean liners, Cruise Ships, Cargo Ships, Oil tanker ships, whaling ships, yacht etc all comes with a surgical design and any flaw or error in design could be catastrophically fatal.
The picture you are looking at dated back to 2014, it was a remarkable one marking a ten years anniversary of one of the biggest Ocean Liner ever built. Just like the largest buildings and structures in the our world, I present to you the largest purposely built passenger ship designed as an Ocean Liner and not a cruise ship. Costing around $687 Million you would say its as costly as a Skyscraper but not as expensive as the tallest buildings in the world.
Named Queen Mary 2 and you could see the Ship Captain, Captain Kevin Oprey standing on the ship's bulbous bow protruding out of water off the coast of Bali in 2014. This feat alone tool months of planning to avoid capsizing while it marks a decade at sea after commissioning. From A design and architectural perspective, this 151,200 tonne ocean liner could take as much time to build as a Skyliners in the events that the designs are gotten wrong. This 2,695 passenger ship with 1,253 had made over over a thousand voyages meaning it was structurally safe to accommodate thousands of people. It was designed by Stephen Payne.
Ships takes months or years to build considering the materials and different tests to be carried out like Buoyancy test, tensile test, pressure test and so on. All these makes it very complex and at the same time interesting just like building massive Bridges, Dams, Roads and Underground tunnels. Do you think its suitable under Architecture or you got another category to classify it? Let's discuss!
