Pipe Dreaming at FESTA

The Festival of Transitional Architecture (FESTA) in Christchurch was initiated in 2012 as a way to reimagine a city in flux, finding its feet after its devastating earthquake. FESTA is curated by Te Pūtahi, a non-profit focused on the current rebuild and ongoing renewal of Christchurch.
