Aftermath - Triumph of the City (Episode Five)

Television (Excerpts) – 2013

The fifth episode in this series about the Christchurch earthquakes looks at the mammoth rebuild the city requires. It explores the competing tensions faced by politicians, planners, developers and citizens to fix the past, look to the future and ensure a result that is as safe and liveable as possible, for an earthquake-scarred populace. This excerpt features cardboard models and state of the art visualisations, as it examines the development of the blueprint to create a smaller central city anchored by the Avon River. 

How can we recreate a city from what’s left that will be future-proofed and will be a city that looks back at its roots, however moves the concept of city into the future?
– Rod Marler, Waterfront Auckland/Christchurch Central Development Unit
