To commemorate those who died in the February 2011 Canterbury earthquake, an international memorial was commissioned, an idyllic site chosen on the banks of the Avon River and a call for design ideas went out to the world. As the room full of memorial ideas is whittled down to six finalists, we travel around the globe to meet these contestant’s in their hometown. Following an exhaustive process, the judges settle on a design. The winner travels to Christchurch to see their memorial idea from concept through to completion.
