Breathe: The new urban village project

This has finished

.
CBD,   Christchurch
Canterbury,   New Zealand

This is an international competition to design and build a new place for living in the Central City.

Work is underway to rebuild and breathe new life into the Central City, following the destruction caused by the earthquakes.

Designers from throughout the world are invited to influence the way the new generation of Central City residents will live within their environment and what type of communities they will want to be part of.

Christchurch’s new urban village will offer medium density housing with easy access to green space, the new performing arts precinct, retail and entertainment areas, and transport and recreation facilities.

The new urban village is about creating breathing space and spaces that breathe in the new Central City. The village will offer sustainable, modern living on the edge of the planned green belt that will define the central business area and connect with the new urban living spaces.

Stage One closes at 5pm, Tuesday 15 January 2013.

Note that each team must have a designer and a developer as a minimum for Stage 1.
