Sixty buildings and six routes around a rebuilding city

The second in the series of guides to New Zealand’s urban architecture by the well-known team of writer John Walsh and photographer Patrick Reynolds. This handy pocket-sized book suggests a series of city walks that take in both the historic buildings that survived the earthquakes and the striking new buildings that have risen from the rubble.

It’s the perfect guide for visitors to Christchurch and also for locals who want to know more about their city.

‘It’s easy to become caught up in negativity when you think about the politics of the Christchurch rebuild period, but the feeling I get from Walsh and Reynolds’ book is one of optimism.’ — Philip Matthews, Newsroom Book of the Week
