Two of our Landscape Architects, Sarah Peddie and Erin Diao have been working in a team to create an exhibition for Christchurch's Festival of Transitional Architecture. The exhibition, called ‘Biodiversity Beacons’ will create 7 beacons, each focusing on a specific insect to be found in the city and the associated plants which it needs to survive. The exhibition, aims to increase people’s knowledge of the connections within our surrounding environment, and the complex systems which are all a vital part of the world around us.

Respect for the unique context of an environment has been a successful guiding principle of Chris Glasson Landscape Architects.

An $11.2 million hotwater pool facility on the Christchurch beachfront will feature six pools, a steam room, sauna and a cafe. Five hot salt water pools will range in temperature from 40 degrees Celsius to 28C for the fitness pool and a small circular plunge pool will sit at 12C. The pools will be split into four zones including passive therapeutic, fitness, family passive and family active zones. There will be two buildings either side of the pools housing changing rooms, the steam room and sauna, toilets, a plant room and cafe.
