Christchurch Cathedral

The proposal seeks to carefully improve the visitor experience and setting of Christchurch Cathedral. As in the last designed scheme of 1886, it too seeks not to obscure the layers of history that are an irreplaceable patina of the site. By a few moves, the landscape design recasts the principal site features and artifacts, restoring them to prominence while dealing with the functioning of the space as a place of worship, a nationally significant heritage site, a must see visitor experience and a place of sanctuary and restoration of balance in a busy city.
