Over the last 10 years a large number of new buildings have been constructed around Christchurch. We will visit a number of these and learn about their design and construction:
- How does the building impact on its local environment
- To what extent were environmental considerations incorporated in design + why
We will visit numerous building around the CBD and build a picture of the good and bad.
We will also give some thought to our own building:
- what features were included
- to what extent were student ideas/ requests incorporated
And for all of these buildings we will ask if they are as good as they could have been. If not, why not? Are there any steps that could be taken to make them better?
