Reconstruction: Conversations on a City

Material relating to a Transitional Cities project, titled 'Reconstruction: Conversations on a City'. The project description reads, "Tracking the story of Christchurch/Otautahi from its earliest years, Reconstruction gathers together a fascinating selection of digitised drawings, photographs, paintings, maps and plans to provide a compelling visual account of how this place came to be. In examining foundations, it also acknowledges loss and, in reconstructing aspects of this city's past, it demonstrates how different dreams and values have been given form in our built environment. Contributions from a range of thoughtful commentators raise questions: can this city be rebuilt as a place of genuine quality and interest if it undervalues the significance of its rich architectural heritage past?".
