Christchurch’s renewal

After the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 – the latter being the big one – Christchurch’s residents started the big clean up, but they left some interesting remnants of the disaster.

Their inventiveness came to the fore too, when many merchants and food sellers needed a place to trade in the devastated city, and the Re:Start project was created, a temporary shopping centre built from shipping containers.

Street art, blue skies and sculpture made for an interesting day being a travelling photographer.
