Topic: Canterbury Earthquake Memorial

Topic type:

The Canterbury Earthquake Memorial is located on the edge of the Ōtākaro/Avon River between Montreal Street and Rhododendron Island. The site was selected following feedback from bereaved family members.

The concept of the Memorial was decided through an open design process. ‘Ideas to Remember’ was launched in July 2014. Six design ideas were shortlisted and the designers were invited to develop their ideas further. Sessions were also held with bereaved families, first responders and elected members in February before public consultation.
