Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna O Waiwhetu features a flowing glass and metal sculpture wall, evoking the sinuous form of the koru and the River Avon that flows through Christchurch. Curved pools of water at the base of the wall also echo the River Avon and create an impression of constantly changing light. Designed by leading Australasian architects, The Buchan Group, the gallery is a three-level building covering 60 percent of a large inner city site. The outdoor area is a Sculpture Garden, incorporating trees, water features and recreational spaces, which offer a gathering space and destination in its own right. The building houses nine exhibition areas, a reference and study library, a multi-purpose auditorium, education workrooms, underground car-parking, a restaurant, retail outlets and extensive collection storage space.

Lynn says:
Not only is the Art Gallery a visually stunning building but not one pane of glass broken after this last earthquake. This is an absolute credit to the Buchan Group.
