New Building Taking Shape on Colombo Street

June 22, 2016

In the space of a couple of weeks this new building (not yet completed) suddenly looked like an actual building and not like a construction site. I rather like the curves of it. Something a bit different.

This new work of street art recently appeared on the UniMed building which is located on the corner of Manchester and Gloucester Streets. The artwork is by professional graffiti artist Wongi Wilson. It’s nice to see these murals going onto new buildings.

Great Hall at the Arts Centre Re-Opened

June 19, 2016

This weekend the public of Christchurch had a chance to visit the newly restored and re-opened Great Hall that is within the Arts Centre building. I visited both days and it was a constant stream of people coming through the hall – such was the interest and excitement about Christchurch getting back such an important building. The Great Hall is part of the wider Arts Centre restoration. The Great Hall was built in 1882 and  features a stunning window that is a memorial to the students of Canterbury College who died during World War I.
