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. "

Ideas Expo: building a new Creative Christchurch through precincts

"Fifteen urban designers, business leaders, arts and tourism representatives, geo–tech experts, architects, environmentalists, students and a Central City resident for 57 years will share their ideas for Christchurch's Central City in the Speakers' Corner at this weekend's (14 and 15 May) community expo."

(Rebuild Christchurch, 14 and 15 May 2011)

[It's not very often that whole cities are re–designed as is the case with Christchurch in Aotearoa New Zealand. While earthquakes continue to shake the region Christchurch residents are making plans for the future. The Christchurch City Council invited key stakeholders to present their perspectives as part of their public consultation process. In doing so Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology (CPIT) Dean Dr. Jane Gregg and Creative Industries Faculty Stakeholder Manager Martin Trusttum explain their vision for a "Creative Christchurch" based on the concept of precincts.]
