Road Cone Exhibition

The other day I took my camera into central Christchurch for the first time since the earthquake in February. My main aim was to take some photos of the Road Cone Exhibition for Erik, but I also took a couple of photos of buildings inside the "red zone".

This is Clarendon Tower, which is awaiting demolition.


And this is Rydges Hotel, which is currently inaccessible but due to reopen in 2012. In the foreground is the plinth that once supported the Scott Statue, which toppled and was damaged in the earthquake. There's a picture of what's left of the statue here.



So, on to the exhibition, which featured over 40 cone sculptures by Certificate in Design students at the Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology (CPIT). The venue was under a large tree in the Botanic Gardens.



Below are just a few of the many fine pieces on display.

A pine tree would have been an appropriate venue.
