Tūranga Christchurch Central Library

Entrant: Architectus in association with Schmidt Hammer Lassen

The design by Architectus in association with Schmidt Hammer Lassen and in collaboration with Matapopore Trust for Christchurch City Council, Tūranga fully meets the Council’s new library vision as a ‘symbol of hope, unity and rebirth’.  Tūranga Christchurch Central Library impressed the Judges through the culturally responsive design and implementation with knowledge, ancestry, whakapapa and cultural relevance at the forefront.  There are exterior and interior elements that collectively achieve the desired spirit of whakamanuhiri, welcoming guests from the outside to the inside.  Tūranga Christchurch Central Library connects well with the unique cultural identity and heritage of Christchurch City.
