Canterbury Earthquakes Memorial Concept

An international design competition to create a memorial to the victims of the 2011 Canterbury region earthquake.

The objectives were to honour the 185 people who lost their lives, remembers and gives thanks to the people who helped with rescue and recovery, recognise the shared human experience of those involved, provide a space for civic events, allow for reflection and contemplation for small groups and individuals, and to become an anchor point for remembering the city and Canterbury.
