Public Realm - Saved and Restored Award

The Clock Tower, The Arts Centre of Christchurch

Entrant: The Arts Centre of Christchurch Trust

One of the central city’s most significant landmarks, the Clock Tower Block at the Arts Centre of Christchurch was designed by colonial architect Benjamin Mountfort for Canterbury College, later the University of Canterbury, in 1877. Damaged in the Canterbury earthquakes the Clock Tower block has been restored and fully strengthened by the Arts Centre’s team with careful attention to the minutiae of detail to ensure that its built form and patina of age have remained intact. As the entry stated the restoration has matched the Clock Tower’s “…status in civic life and communal memory.”
