Two people involved in the Sustainable Habitat Challenge have started gathering people together for the rebuild of Christchurch.
Here’s the note I received from Tim Bishop:
Did you know, that following the Napier earthquake of 1931, a six-month building moratorium was laid down to allow for a planning process? Look at the positive legacy that such planning has produced.
There is huge opportunity here to retrofit Christchurch into one of the country’s most sustainable, resilient and beautiful cities and to create a similarly positive legacy for its communities.
We can assist by making ourselves easily accessible to those in need in Christchurch, and by providing a range of proven concepts, ideas and skilled designers and builders.
We are looking for builders and designers who would like to contribute to the Christchurch reconstruction effort. Would you like to assist? Please leave you details on the form here
There is also a Facebook group set up by Alex Hills for Pro-Bono Design for Christchurch which is gathering people together who will be able to bring some great influence to the design and rebuilding processes.
