One of the challenges for architects – working within the constrained budgets that post-quake Christchurch frequently presents – is to create safe, functional buildings that also include some architecture. Where do you prioritise modest finances to achieve an enlightened architectural solution?

When Alice fell through the looking glass, she was faced with an uncanny sense of scale. Whenever I arrive back in Christchurch I feel the same way, except that it is not me that seems too big but the buildings.

My personal view is that the plan is what it is and it is better than having no plan at all. Inevitably, there is a range of opinions on the plan and the way in which it is being executed but, hopefully, the majority of people will come to understand its direction, realise its advantages, and support it.

The new Leighs Construction headquarters in central Christchurch will be one of the strongest commercial buildings in the new city, built to Importance Level 4, or 188 per cent of the building code, the same strength hospitals are required to reach.
