The collapse of the CTV building in Christchurch during the 2011 earthquake resulted in the loss of 115 lives and many more injuries. The site, on the corner of Cashel and Madras streets, remains one of the most poignant reminders of the event for local residents.
The design team at Jasmax, working with development company Ōtākaro Limited, came on board to create a memorial at the site. Jasmax describes creating the tribute as a highly sensitive process. They wanted to deliver a design that payed homage to the gravity and sadness of the space but also aimed to provide a little lightness and hope.
