Something For Everyone…

One thing that we couldn’t miss whilst visiting Cathedral Square in Christchurch, New Zealand, were the quirky seats dotted around the area. These were green (artificial) grassy cube shaped seats, a fun and colourful solution to public seating. On the site of several demolished buildings, a short distance away, the first barrier separating the footpath from the car park also doubled as a seating area. There were of course the older, traditional seats that form a square around each of several large trees too, and the “historic” seats in the general form of piano and it’s keys, that have been around as long as the giant chess set has been in existence, so in essence: something for everyone.

    • lulu,
      I’m not quite sure what state you saw some of these places, especially with the Christchurch earthquakes. One thing is for sure, the rebuild is coming, it may be slow but the wheels of change are turning.

      • We were there just before the earthquake.

        • lulu,
          Sorry for the late reply, I’ve been out of the country, then catching up at work.

          Wow, I am so glad that you got to see everything (old buildings, the Cathedral etc.) before the quakes, and Wow again, these photos of the quake aftermath must be a big shock and massive contrast to what you saw when you visited.
