Gap Filler Project 27
"In Our Backyard" was a design competition where students were asked what they would put on a vacant site in Christchurch. The six winning ideas were given $500; a mentor from Entre; and lots of advice from the Gap Filler team. On 28 July 2012, six ideas were realised on vacant sites in Richmond, New Brighton and the Central City. These sites were a BMX/Pump Tack in the Cafe Valentino Gap; a labyrinth in the site of St Luke's Church; Street Soccer of St Asaph Street; Foamapalooza, a children's foam playground in New Brighton; 500 days, an art mural in Richmond; and a Life Size Board Game in North Shore.
