Elevation exhibition highlights Christchurch's heritage buildings

An exhibition by architectural illustrator Luciana Orr consisting of 25 original illustrations of Christchurch's beautiful heritage buildings, opens at Our City O-Tautahi next Monday, 12 December.

Titled Elevation, the exhibition will soon be published as a public resource and archival record in the form of a reproducible folio and CD.

Organisations can register their interest in receiving one of the first publications, free to schools, libraries and publicly funded organisations, through

Our City O-Tautahi is a City Council operated community exhibition space in the council's historic original Municipal Chambers, on the corner of Oxford Terrace and Worcester Boulevard. Exhibitions are open 10am - 4pm, Monday to Saturday. All welcome.
