Places of Tranquillity

“This idea behind this garden was to work with the city’s ethnic communities to include their traditions, culture and spiritual beliefs in a public space. The goal was to ensure that these communities’ voices and presence is more visible in the rebuild of our city.”

The idea behind this garden was to work with the city’s ethnic communities to include their traditions, culture and spiritual beliefs in a public space. The goal was to ensure that these communities’ voices and presence is more visible in the rebuild of our city. There were three key partners in this collaborative project. Greening the Rubble provided expertise in temporary site development and project managed the creation. Lincoln University School of Landscape Architecture provided a student competition for the design of the project and supported the winning students to see their designs produced. Healthy Christchurch, part of Community and Public Health, provided the overall project management, networks and promotion.
