Gap Filler Project 05: Words of Hope, CPIT Design/Build

"Words of Hope" was a project put together by Architecture students at the Christchurch Polytechnic. A vacant site on Ferry Road was transformed into a symbolic human-scale Christchurch City with recycled and found objects serving as the buildings. These 'buildings' were painted white and visitors to the site were encouraged to share their ideas and words of hope and support by tagging or writing on them.
