Successful Workshop – Build in New Zealand.

Christchurch has been through a hard time, do doubt. Its been over 2 years since the worst quake, which threw the city into chaos and its residents into turmoil.

Its now March 2013 and a lot of the roads are still terrible, the whole central city is still closed down, there are blocks that used to be hubs that are gravel car parks and thousands of houses are red stickered and stand empty.

 Mike Reynolds took an interest in the Christchurch situation, and came to visit us in NZ for 6 days in mid March. Half of Mike’s time was filled up with public seminars to Christchurch residents, and he also managed to fit in a meeting with the Christchurch City Council, a talk to architecture students, a retro fit talk and 2 media interviews.

The other 3 days, we worked on a small demo Earthship, just a 1 room with vaulted ceiling up on the port hills over looking Christchurch. We had a core of 4 or 5 kiwis and had 35 participants onsite working, learning and collaboration on this small 10sq meter building.

 

Here are some images our our killer wee build!
