One of the defining events in Christchurch’s history is a massive earthquake that devastated the town in 2011. This memorial, 185 Empty White Chairs, memorializes each of the 185 victims of the earthquake. Everywhere you go in town, there are buildings being supported by beams, being demolished, or being rebuilt. I’ve been to many cities - Christchurch is a bit unique because they’ve very recently had a recent on how their town is laid out. They are trying some new things and making a very unique place.
