About the Book
The Future Christchurch project brings together a group of six thesis students from the University of Auckland’s School of Architecture and Planning to engage in a collective design project. Through a collaborative process, the project proposes a framework for the development and rebuild of Christchurch. It begins by researching local economies to identify potential catalysts for growth and inform urban strategies and architectural systems. The collaborative process enables a synergy between each of the strategies, recognising that economies intimately coexist, rather than stand alone.
