Open Urban: Know Your City - Map, Inform, Discuss

"OpenUrban is the first open source user–generated web map and forum focusing on current and proposed urban development. It is a web platform for civic collaboration, a venue for debate, and an outlet and archive for information on urban development. We embrace crowd sourcing technology as a means to inform and empower. By combining written media with spatial information OpenUrban creates a powerful tool for people to understand how their cities are changing and supports their active participation in that change."

Modular architecture central to Christchurch's urban regeneration

"Martin Trusttum, from CPIT's Faculty of Creative Industries, likens his ArtBox project to a game of Tetris. 'It's just like Tetris but in slow motion. They are cubes and eventually they will come together to form a precinct.'

ArtBox will be located on the corner of Madras and St Asaph streets on the old Southlander Tavern–Jetset Lounge site opposite Anton Parsons' sculpture Passing Time.

It is a rare collection of mobile and flexible modules designed by Sydenham–based F3 and will offer about 18 spaces suitable for galleries and studios. It offers a practical, timely solution to the many low–cost premises used as galleries and studios destroyed by the February 2011 earthquake. "
